From Rags to Riches: The Cayman Islands Revolution

Start Date: May 05, 2014
Program Length: 1 week

The Cayman Islands, infamously known for international tax sheltering, experienced a miracle when it went from a backwards and savage barter economy in the 1960s, to a per capita GDP that was higher than the UK’s in the 1980s.

Join us as we partner up with the Federalist Society and Prof. Andrew Morriss to explore the institutional, legal, and regulatory frameworks, predicated on property rights and a rule of law, that led to this mass wealth creation and complete economic transformation in only 20 short years!
