The Long-Awaited Great Debate:
Tax Competition vs. Tax Cartels!

(Washington, DC, Wednesday, February 27, 2008) The Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation is pleased to announce that the long-awaited " Tax Competition vs. Tax Cartels!" debate is officially scheduled.

It may not be at the same level as the Lincoln-Douglas debates (though Richard Murphy and Jack Blum want taxpayers to be slaves of government). It may not get the ratings of the Ali-Frazier "Thrilla-in-Manilla" (though we are expecting a knock-out). And it may not dominate the headlines like Donald Trump vs. Rosie O'Donnell (can we choose none-of-the-above?).

But when Dan Mitchell (Senior Fellow, Cato Institute, USA), and Richard Hay (International Tax Principal, Stikeman Elliott, UK) square off against Richard Murphy (Research Director, Tax Justice Network, UK) and Jack Blum (Co-Author, Financial Havens, Banking Secrecy & Money Laundering , USA), sparks are sure to fly.

Some of you may remember there were rumors of a Mitchell-Murphy debate several months ago. This led to a debate about a possible debate ( see http://www.freedomandprosperity.org/press/p12-27-06/p12-27-06.shtml and http://www.freedomandprosperity.org/blog/2007-01/2007-01.shtml#153 for more info).

So if they squabble that much over ground rules, imagine how much fun it will be when they actually cross (rhetorical) swords for real!

The debate is being sponsored by Offshore Alert, and will take place April 14 in Fort Lauderdale, Fl, at the 6th Financial Diligence Conference: http://www.offshorealertconference.com/OAC2008/home.asp. To get an early peak at the debate, see http://www.offshorealertconference.com/OAC2008/OFCDebate.asp.

Needless to say, we hope to see many of our friends in the audience. Murphy and Blum will doubtlessly be pumped up since the debate takes place on the eve of their favorite day of the year, so we need some friends in the audience. If you are interested, registration details are available at: http://www.offshorealertconference.com/OAC2008/rates.asp.
