Fighting for Tax Havens on French TV

Former Senator Phil Gramm used to joke that trying to restrain government in Washington was like “doing the Lord’s work in the Devil’s city.” After my recent appearance on French TV to debate tax havens, I have a better sense of how he felt.

I was the lone pro‐​market spokesman, matched up against three statists, to discuss the topic: “Should tax havens be banned.” Needless to say, the program was not exactly designed to promote a libertarian viewpoint.

For those interested in this issue, you can watch Part I and Part II. Feel free to send me feedback.
