CF&P Video Punctures
Tax Haven Myths

(Washington, DC, Monday, December 1, 2008) Today, the Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation released the final installment of a three-part mini-documentary series on the beneficial impact of low-tax jurisdictions. The new video, entitled Tax Havens: Myths vs. Facts, directly addresses the main attacks put forth by politicians and interest groups that demagogue against low-tax countries. Narrated by Dan Mitchell of the Cato Institute, the video cites academic research and data from international organizations to show why the anti-tax haven rhetoric is baseless.

Andrew Quinlan, the president of the CF&P Foundation, remarked "This final video in our tax haven trilogy addresses and answers many of misconceptions disseminated by politicians and other advocates of welfare-state policies who often try to smear tax havens as part of their efforts to undermine tax competition."  

The mini-documentary is the final installment of a three-part series.  Part I explained the economic benefits of low-tax jurisdictions, and Part II explored the many ethical and moral reasons to support tax havens.

    The Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation has produced videos showing the economic and moral benefits of so-called tax havens. This final video in the three-part series addresses some of the most common myths put forth by politicians from high-tax nations.
