Zug featured on national CBS TV in the US

Hi - moving to Zug this Summer and an American friend told me that the tax haven of Zug was featured on the Sunday evening (primetime) national documentary show "60 Minutes" on the CBS TV channel.

This video clip is 14 minutes long and I thought it may be of interest:

I was there when it was filmed outside my wifes office near the Siemens offices. Haven't seen the interview yet though.

Re: Zug featured on national CBS TV in the US

For the Americans, watch this. It's very interesting.

It's basically saying that all over the world, countries have reduced taxes to attract companies. The US have kept their taxes high and are about to have the highest taxes in the world. International companies refuse to come back to the States until taxes have been lowered. The Obama administration refuses to lower taxes. And so the international companies are staying away, using Zug and Ireland as their tax haven.

Interesting reporting. Thanks for posting.

Lets just hope that Obama sees this.
Wouldn't that be a win-win situation? More money in the USA and less expats complaining about foreign countries.
