"Through Fixing U.S. International Taxation
, Daniel Shaviro has undertaken a thorough reconceptualization of the United States' approach to international tax law and policy. Shaviro proposes a complete reformulation in the hope of reshaping the treatment of foreign taxes and the determination of tax rates on foreign source income." -Jim Chen, Jurisdynamics
"The true value comes from Shaviro's proposals and ideas. The subject matter is unavoidably complex, but he strives to boil down the material to the stuff that helps us achieve the task assigned in the title of the book. His explanations are clearly developed and rational so that readers with only a minimal background in international tax can follow even the most difficult issues. Unlike so much that is written on international tax, there is no ostensible pro- or anti-business slant and no political bias If you are striving for a true understanding of the issues involved in this historic transformation, you are lucky Shaviro wrote this book when he did." -Martin A. Sullivan, Tax Notes
