This post appeared on the RenounceUScitizenship blog. It references a very good public policy article. The article puts FATCA in the context of international law and the limits of U.S. sovereignty. The article was tweeted by Just Me in June. I see that some Brockers have left comments. It really needs to be read (for those who have not) with the Kleinfeld article posted earlier today. They fit together very nicely.

The above tweet references one of the best articles I have seen on the interaction between international law, FATCA, citizenship-based taxation and intelligent public policy.
