Nigel Green, CEO of deVere Group, sounds another forceful warning about FATCA while confirming his support for the efforts of both Jim Bopp and our own ADCS.
History will ultimately teach us that America’s far-reaching new global tax law, FATCA, which came into effect Tuesday, is a “hammer blow for the U.S. economy”, warns the founder and chief executive of one of the world’s largest independent financial advisory organizations.
The stark warning from Nigel Green of deVere Group, which has $10bn under advice and management, is in response to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), better known as ‘FATCA’, which was implemented by Washington yesterday.
“As such, I will continue to voice my calls for this damaging tax act – which cannot possibly effectively achieve its purported aims of combatting tax evasion – to be definitively repealed.
“I will also continue to champion the legal and constitutional challenges being prepared by the likes of American super-lawyer Jim Bopp Jr. and the Alliance for the Defence of Canadian Sovereignty.”
Likely, though we have Senators that expressed pretty strong feelings too. I wonder just how strong their concern is?
Even though he may not have meant it, he did say regarding protests: “…many in Canada; many Senators taking up the cause.”
George and others: Do not assume Mr. Green will not read e-mails.
Mr. Green had deVere`s media and public relations rep contact me this morning. We plan to contact Mr. Green again soon through him on ways we might be able to team up.
@Blaze, Bravo!!!!!! I assumed the spam filter would make it impossible to get through. But handwritten notes and a stamp do have an added personal touch.

Some FATCA blowback?
@George: It took me a while, but with persistence and help from another Brocker, I made it across the communications moat surrounding deVere. We’re not through the castle door yet, but we’re knocking!
I tweeted him a few times (thanks Brockers and Sandboxers for the retweets). I sent him a Canada Day e-mail on Tuesday with a link to ADCS. On Wednesday, he was “championing” ADCS.

I am sure Mr. Green sees the importance and linkage between the Charter Challenge and the challenge in the USA.
The Charter Challenge might just be the lower hanging fruit. And when that goes, the dominoes will fall and fall.
I agree with the linkage. We need to hit back against “The War on Expats” with legal challenges on both sides of the border as well as globally with the media.
– Donate to ADSC
– Donate to Jim Bopp
– Support Solomon Yue and RO’s initiative
– Support ACA (even though they seem to be getting a bit soft lately)
– Keep blitzing Media stories with comments. Copy and paste comments from Brock threads, many of them are really amazing.
The “peculiar institution” of CBT is a modern form of slavery. This shameful chapter of American history must be brought to an end.
