No videos but interesting picture summary. The guests were not at each others throats at least from appearances as I might have expected. Jatras and Eggert even appeared together at the end to have picture taken with the just the two of them.
Also a link to the presentations:
I am considering doing my own PowerPoint presentation on this issue for anyone who has to speak at these conferences against FATCA because I think I can do one ten times as better as any of the pro-FATCA people can. I have to say just from reading the presentations of the second group of panelists who were mainly compliance “consultants” I cannot say I was overly impressed. I think in general a lot of issues I discuss frequently were never really brought up.
I also took with interest one of the presentations by the second panel that expected the final rules to be release by October 31st. Clearly this has not been the case. In fact none other than Jesse Eggert announced at least from what I understood at other conference just two days later that the final rules were not being released until the end of the year. I am curious whether there was any mention of this at the GMU conference.
