Art is used for Tax avoidance and Money Laundering


From the FT:

“Whether we like it or not, art is used for tax avoidance and evasion,” Prof Roubini said. “It can be used for money laundering. You can buy something for half a million, not show a passport, and ship it. Plenty of people are using it for laundering.”

Professor Nouriel Roubini, an economist at New York University's Stern School and himself an art collector, said the market had to regulate itself or be subjected to external regulation because it had weaknesses that would not be allowed in other kinds of financial markets, such as equities.
"Whether we like it or not, art is used for tax avoidance and evasion," Prof Roubini said. "It can be used for money laundering. You can buy something for half a million, not show a passport, and ship it. Plenty of people are using it for laundering."
