Do we know what it means for people who keep their accounts in Monaco? My understanding is that Monaco was famous for its banking secrecy and it made its fortune because of it. No more banking secrecy?

Excellent photos. I like them very much. Specially for the background, the yacht helps the pic to be nice.
Prince Albert looks charming.

Lakshmi #481:
The OECD's Secretary-General said in his interview that a considerable amount of peer pressure will be applied by all those who have subscribed to this accord and are complying with it. Each member country can also enact new or stronger legislation to bring the non-compliant companies to heel.

Each time when I see Prince Albert's smile, I clearly understand he is endowed with a good sense of humour.
It's great, Iceflower, you are an amazing person!
