Over Thanksgiving I had the rare opportunity to see a cousin of mine who lives on the East Coast and works in the arenas of business and political consulting. He’s a smart fellow and I certainly respect his opinion. And just as Rachel Maddow predicted, we wound up talking about the so-called fiscal cliff.
My cousin pointed out that the United States’ corporate tax rate is higher than that of other countries, including western Europe.
“Really?” I asked. “What’s the corporate tax rate of the Scandinavian countries?”
