How the OECD Is Promoting More Identity Theft, Crime, Industrial Espionage, and Suppression of Political Dissidents
Tax treaties are usually positive or benign. The protocol amending the multilateral Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters, currently being considered for ratification by the United States senate, is being marketed by the Obama Treasury, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and tax officials in various national governments as just another tax treaty. It is nothing of the sort.
The protocol is part of a new information sharing regime that is being promoted by the OECD which will lead to substantially more transnational identity theft, crime, industrial espionage, financial fraud and the suppression of political opponents and religious or ethnic minorities by authoritarian and corrupt governments.
