One Response to “complimentary download Lexis’ FATCA Guide Chapter 1”

  1. I actually enjoyed reading this first chapter. Refreshingly unacademic, the average college graduate should easily grasp the history and protocol behind this most recent multi-national attempt at reining in tax fraud and abuse. As an independent political science scholar who adheres to no dogma, I believe that FATCA and such other international agreements simply add layers of bureaucracy to a problem that could be solved with an infinitesimal Financial Transaction Tax at the time of transfer of large sums. But as the chapter points out, the reform goals for the US tax code have been clear for decades, and have never been enacted by Congresses from either US corporate-controlled party. Can we really develop and implement a practical means to finance the public goods that support corporate profits without making the rich have vapors?
