|Abstract:||This study analyses cross-border capital flows in order to verify the existence and direction of the effect of the soft regulation promoted by international organizations against banking secrecywhich characterized the so called tax and financial heavens. This effect is called in the literature Stigma Effect, but both the existence and the direction of the stigma effect are far frombeing obvious. The international capital flows can simply neglect the relevance of the blacklisting, or worst, the attractiveness of banking secrecy can produce a race to the bottom: the desire to elude more transparent regulation can sensibly influence the capitalmovements.We testwhether being included and later excluded from the FATF blacklist is an effectivemeasure that influences countries’ cross-border capital flows. Using annual panel data for the period 1996–2014, we apply our framework to 126 countries worldwide. We find evidence that in general the stigma effect does not exist.|
