A global pact on this issue, as enunciated by Yellen, works well for the US government at this time. The same holds for most other countries in western Europe, even as some low-tax European jurisdictions such as the Netherlands, Ireland, and Luxembourg and some in the Caribbean rely largely on tax rates to attract MNCs.
Who are the Targets?
Apart from low-tax jurisdictions, these are for large tech companies like Apple, Facebook, Google, and Amazon with major hubbies like Nike and Starbuck which are for more profit on low tax offering countries like Ireland or Caribbean nations such as the British Virgin Islands or the Bahamas, or to central American nations such as Panama.
