  • Glenn Jenkins

    () (Queen's University, Kingston, On, Canada)


This statement outlines the economic effects of certain features of the existing method of taxation of the foreign operations of the United States petroleum corporations. These tax provisions have allowed the American petroleum companies to largely avoid paying United States tax on their foreign earned income since at least 1962. It also discusses some of the tax and subsidy proposals that have been made to shape the growth the demand and supply of energy within the United States.
