Re: Witholding tax

You forget that not everyone wants to play ball. Ireland and Luxembourg are tiny countries with small populations and low operating expenses. They WANT to cheat, can AFFORD to do so due to their low operating expenses, AND since they're sovereign, they can block any attempt to be forced to play fair.
