What America Could Do with $150 Billion Lost to Offshore Tax Havens
Many corporations and wealthy individuals use offshore tax havens—countries with minimal or no taxes—to avoid paying $150 billion in U.S. taxes each year.

To put this sum in perspective, we present 16 potential ways that income could be used.
