Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We should certainly post a link to the Anglo disease (ie a copy of my comment above) on their site. Can anyone do it, givne that I have no access?

Many islands host both tourism and offshore finance, but their coexistence has been little researched. This paper examines their relationship via a case study of the British Channel Island of Jersey. Both sectors require labor, land, and capital--all frequently scarce in small islands. The study considers the nature of the relationship and resource competition. In light of the unusual context of small polities and the political power of external actors, it also analyzes the dynamics of tourism, offshore finance, and the state in islands. The overall impact of the relationship between tourism and offshore finance is further examined, to suggest how this affects islands' economic development.
