  1. Doug Reaves :

    I wonder if the Facebook representatives will discuss the advantages of giving up their US citizenship to avoid taxes. It appears to be a new trend among the mega-wealthy: give up US citizenship and avoid most US taxes, but prosper from its infrastructure. Evidently, at least one of the Facebook founders has taken this course of action.
