Dan Mitchell on the US Tax Regime

Dan Mitchell on the US Tax Regime: Mises Institute

Daniel J. Mitchell is a PhD economist and the Cato Institute’s resident tax expert. He’s also a great defender, on moral grounds, of so-called tax havens—which are nothing more than sovereign foreign countries that dare to have lower tax rates than Uncle Sam prefers.

Taxes sound like a boring subject, but Dan brings great energy and passion to the subject: he’ll tell us why the US “worldwide” tax regime violates the basic human right not to be hounded by a country in which you neither live nor have income, why Burger King was right to move its corporate headquarters out of the US, why greedy politicians hate tax competition, and why invasive laws like FATCA should scare anyone who cares about privacy.
