Extract from Wall Street Journal:

Beware the sledgehammer used to crack the nut. In this case, the nut is the U.S. government's laudable goal of catching tax evaders.

Nothing new but well written. Colleen Graffy is an interesting person though:

Not sure what she is doing now. It says London on the WSJ article?

Very good article.

Some comments claim it was unduly slanted against U.S. tax policies.  However most comments were in favor of Graffy's article & against the ridiculous FATCA legislation.

This forum needs a way to make itself known to the  commenters.
