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 sounds like a boring subject, but Dan brings great energy and passion to the discussion: he tells 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.
Daniel J. Mitchell is a top expert on fiscal policy issues such as tax reform, the economic impact of government spending, and supply-side tax policy. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from George Mason University. His blog is Liberty – Restraining Government in America and Around the World.
