A short interview.
It is becoming more common for jurisdictions throughout the world to go after multinational companies for back taxes purportedly owed. What’s at the root of this trend and will it continue? How can companies fight back?
TW: The root of the trend? Idiocy. There are people out there, all too many of them in politics, who really think that companies pay tax. Rather than it being that combination of shareholders and workers who carry the economic incidence. A result we’ve known since 1899, which should be long enough for even politicians to catch up.
