Notas de leitura: Menos impostos para mais crescimento

Daniel J. Mitchell [The Moral Case for Tax Havens]
"The campaign against tax havens interferes with the right of jurisdictions to pursue pro-growth policies. This is especially onerous for poor jurisdictions. Having “no or low taxes” is the main criteria for being listed as a tax haven by the OECD.
Yet most OECD nations did not have income taxes during the 1800s, which was the period of time when they climbed from agricultural poverty to middle class prosperity. Why is it wrong for developing nations to follow the same development strategy?"
