1) Novak, Kemp, Smith and Gregg speak out against the OECD's misguided "harmful tax competition" project

Robert Novak, the country's leading economic and political columnist, warns of the OECD's global tax police scheme. That is the good news. The bad news is that some of our friends leaked information from off-the-record meetings. This is unhelpful since it irritates our friends in the administration and makes it harder for them to help us. Nonetheless, an interesting piece. Link to full article below:

2) CFP's Andrew Quinlan to speak at Heritage Foundation Seminar

Washington's premier think tank, The Heritage Foundation, is sponsoring a seminar next Monday, April 23. In addition to a sumptuous lunch (perhaps a slight exaggeration), attendees will hear an update from the Center and two speakers on the adverse trade, privacy, and sovereignty implications of the OECD agenda.
