  • Aired: 08/26/2014

  • Rating: NR
In the past three years, 22 American companies have relocated outside U.S. borders, usually through mergers with or purchases of a foreign company. That move, known as a tax inversion, means corporations are no longer subject to American corporate taxes. Jeffrey Brown learns more about the strategy and its effect on the economy from Roberton Williams of the Tax Policy Center.
