Professor Richard Gordon’s article, “Moving Money: International Financial Flows, Taxes & Money Laundering,” has been downloaded 1,556 as of June 1.  Few articles in SSRN ever get that kind of attention.  

Professor Richard Gordon’s article on international money laundering climbed to the top five SSRN
downloads of all time in the International Political Economy category last year.  With so much interest in the topic generated by the infamous Panama Papers, Gordon’s article continues to gain in popularity and is now on the top 10 download list for LSN: International & Comparative (Topic) and Law & Society: Public Law - Tax eJournal.

As of June 1, the article -- co-authored with Andrew P. Morriss -- had been downloaded 1,556

Published in Hastings International and Comparative Law Review, Vol. 37, No. 1 – Winter 2014, the article argues that political leaders and other organizational claims of secret offshore, untaxed wealth are often made without a thorough understanding of how international financial transactions work. “Moving Money” also argues that more regulation demands are often made under the assumption that such transactions need to be highly controlled in order to be lawful.

Professor Gordon is the director of the law school’s newly established Executive Master of Arts in Financial Integrity, which prepares students for anti-money laundering and financial crime programs for financial institutions, regulatory and other government agencies.
