As a pure tax haven with no direct taxation on residents or corporations, the Cayman Islands today is considered to be one of the world’s elite offshore tax and money havens. The eyes of the large OECD countries have taken notice with the activities of many offshore financial destinations including the Cayman Islands that are providing very attractive tax rates for investment capital. It is these outward capital flows from rich industrialized nations to offshore financial centres that have resulted in new laws and regulations in the Caymans in an attempt to counter tax evasion in OECD countries. Will these new restrictions and agreements with countries like the United States for transparency and sharing of information derail the Cayman Islands lucrative offshore financial services industry?

Is the Caymanian dollar ‘KYD’ currency peg to the US-dollar (‘USD’) vulnerable?

CHILE peso

Chile is home to outstanding natural beauty including its long coastal Pacific shoreline, Andean mountain peaks, lakes and glacier eloquence in the south. Amongst all this beauty, the nation’s lifeline for national revenue remains for the most part the mining industry centered on copper production. A massive correction in the copper market since July 2008 has correspondingly resulted in a sharp currency revaluation for the Chilean peso versus the US-dollar (‘USD’).

CHINA renminbi or yuan 'CNY'
76 à
The rate of speed of economic and cultural transformation that is currently taking place is very similar to what happened to the United States during the 20th century. Today, China is now the global manufacturing centre for the world. Many of its citizens are becoming financial moguls, market capitalism is blossoming within its socialized political framework. Rapid change is evident within the cities, the urbanization of China is taking place at lightning speed. Many Chinese now desire Western consumer goods and lifestyles from computers, cell phones, clothes and popular brand names. The new national symbol is the construction crane with skyscrapers dominating the skyline.

What future awaits China? Is the Chinese yuan/renminbi currency really that much undervalued as suggested by many American politicians? Is much of the global press perhaps misleading their readers about yuan undervalution?

President Alvaro Uribe has governed Colombia well returning stability and prosperity to the country since he took office in 2002. At that time, the economy was in depression. Today, Colombia’s economy is slowing down but after a significant period of strong economic advancement from years 2003- QTR 3 2008. The peso can now be classified as one of the world’s commodity currencies. Colombia rich in natural gas, oil, minerals, and other natural resources has been a great beneficiary of the commodities boom over the last 5 years.

Beautiful Costa Rica located in Central America has made great economic advancements into interesting industries. This peaceful nation for decades survived from its sole major lifeline, that is traditional coffee farms set up by European settlers over the last 200 years. More recently, Costa Rica over the last 25 years has advanced into a generous welfare state with a wide array of social benefits.

What about the national currency, the colon, can Costa Rica continue to afford this generous lifestyle or will the currency depreciate with debt accumulation?

Since obtaining independence in 1991, Croatia has been at war on two fronts, both militarily and economic. The Balkan region of Europe has had a long history of conflict, ethnic divide and unstable borders. Governments in the region are no stranger to war, the Kosovo conflict being the last major war zone in the late 1990’s.

The Kuna is actually Croatia’s second currency in circulation since independence, but will the Kuna have the same fate as the former Croatian dinar currency did in the early 1990’s?

Positive change is slowly occurring in areas of the Cuban economy with new industries replacing other inefficient segments, gradual reforms allowing cautious advancement towards market based principles.

A new government with President-elect Fernandez is to be sworn into office on August 16, 2004 with a mandate to renew the country’s optimism and economy. Over the last year and a half, the Dominican Republic ‘DR’ peso and economy has crashed as year 2003-04 is one of the nation’s worst economic periods in decades. The peso ‘DOP’ has since collapsed in value from 17 to 45 to the US-dollar ‘USD’ due to mounting inflation pressures, energy shortages, credit downgrades and the increased risk for debt default.

Can President Fernandez rescue the DR economy?

Recent exchange quotes for the peso have it at 42.5 DOP to the USD, is the peso falling farther or has it hit bottom for now?

The East Caribbean currency zone is a tiny common economy when compared to other currency zone arrangements. Surprisingly when compared to several much larger economies and currencies circulating in the world today, the East Caribbean dollar has performed well for these small economies by maintaining relative purchasing power parity. If each island nation within this Eastern Caribbean ‘EC’ zone operated their own individual respective currencies, the outcome would most likely be much different with great instability.

The Euroland euro (EUR) is widely in circulation directly with 18 countries of 28 that make up the European Union (EU) plus 23 countries & territories outside of the European Union and other participants. Since its inception in 1999, the euro has had tremendous exchange valuation volatility. The first few years was a euro currency being attacked by the critics as a weak ineffective flawed experiment in monetary policy.

What’s next for the Euroland euro? Will the entrance of new countries to the Eurozone and/or current members such as Greece, Portugal and Spain create enough instability that may ultimately lead to a Eurozone currency collapse? Or are there other members in serious financial hardship?
