Re: Edward Kleinbard

Edward Kleinbard was cited about the limited economic benefits for Americans when tax breaks encourage companies to repatriate foreign income. After the tax holiday, U.S. corporations even stepped up their sequestering of profits abroad, figuring that sooner or later a new administration would offer them yet another break — as Trump is proposing. That hoard of what Kleinbard calls “stateless income” now tops $2 trillion.
