The easy fix for tax inversion, the corrupt IRS, slow growth and high unemployment

Burger King has just purchased the Canadian coffee and donut chain Tim Horten.  This looks to be a good corporate marriage, blending Horten’s well-known coffee and donuts to Burger King’s well-known hamburgers and fries.  But was this merger done to avoid paying high US corporate taxes?  If it was, what can be done to stop […]
