How did Apple manage to pay an effective tax of 0% on its European profits? Will the new global minimum tax agreement change this? Duke Professor Rachel Brewster explains how corporate families are structured to take advantage of different countries’ laws; Chicago professor Adam Chilton empirically explores the regulation of supply chains; while Berkeley Professor Stavros Gadinis explains why progressives and conservatives alike call for sustainability in corporate governance.In this episode of Borderlines, we discuss successful global coordination efforts, such as the spread of anti-corruption efforts from the US to the world, as well as harmonization in accounting standards. But we also debate the major costs of a global economy structured around the free flow of capital, and regulation that ends at the national border. Borderlines from Berkeley Law is a podcast about global problems in a world fragmented by national borders. Our host is Katerina Linos, Tragen Professor of International Law and co-director of the Miller Institute for Global Challenges and the Law. In each episode of Borderlines, Professor Linos invites three experts to discuss cutting edge issues in international law. See for privacy and opt-out information.
