New videos have been posted of the GMU seminar on FATCA with Jesse Eggert and Jim Jatras.
A couple of thoughts:
1. I did not think the representitive of the German government was all that impressive. In fact I am beggining to think there is real cultural divide on FATCA between Canada and Europe.
2. The audio in part 1 with Jim Jatras and Jesse Eggert unfortionately is a little soft. However, the moderator actually I think did an okay job.
3. Jesse Eggert of Treasury actually seemed to admit the idea of repealing FATCA was not inconcievable as long as “something else” replaced it. In his mind though nothing else had or has been suggested to replace it.
