The Real Reason Americans Are Giving Up Their Citizenship

Forbes nails it: Eduardo Saverin, Not The U.S. Government, Is Entitled To The Wealth He Earned.

Ignore the title. Forbes has done an excellent job of summarizing many of the issues that we expats face. I wish they had done a better job of "humanizing" the problem by sharing some of the stories of people who have been hurt by the USA's crusade against expats, but for their target audience, I think it was a damned fine article.


  1. Check out this article from Slate. The journalist jokingly calls for drone strikes on expats who renounce US citizenship.

    This is a reflection of the attitude expats face from homelanders. Amazing!
