    “Smarter countries with serious people in charge will use the money to cut tax rates or to invest in government efficiencies and reforms that make states work better and cost less”….and these countries are where exactly?

    Didn’t General Electric make a $14billion profit and pay no taxes after which CEO Jeffrey Immelt became a member of the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board?  Seems like the real problem is hidden in plain sight.  Can’t blame the Alpine neighbors for that one.

    The Panopticon state takes another step towards complete subjugation of its so called “citizens”

    A good early step in a long road we need to go down for international tax cooperation. The next step we need is an agreement among most nations to hold taxes steady or increase them in lock-step—–not an idiotic race to the bottom as recommended here for the supposedly “smarter countries”. The wealth divide is a world problem. Income taxation is the only thing which actually mitigates it.
