Gnomes: a race of small, misshapen dwarfs, supposed to dwell in the earth and guard its treasures. Previously found mainly in Switzerland but nowmigrating to other places, such as the Cayman Islands.
The first sentence of this definition comes from a dictionary. The second, which I composed, is based on contemporary developments in international bnking circles and contains a hint of the unprecedented expansion of transnational banking activities in the world during the past decade. Places unheard of a few years ago, such as the Cayman Islands, are now transshipment points for the distribution of financial capital on a worldwide scale. A country such as Panama, which previously most Americans knew primarily as a place whose name precedes the word "Canal" or as the name for a hat, is now an important center of multinational banking, with bank executives and government officials ferried in and out of Panama as freight is ferried over its canal locks.
