This nutshell not only addresses the fundamentals of U.S. international taxation, but it also offers insight into tax planning considerations. Both the U.S. activities of foreign taxpayers, as well as the foreign activities of U.S. taxpayers are explored. In the truly global economy in which we live, it is crucial for those involved in business and investment activities to understand the tax consequences that impact cross-border flows. Building on both academic and private sector careers, the author has used his experience to distill the complexities of real-world tax considerations into a clearly written, straight-forward presentation of the key international tax concepts, including the most recent developments.

This study of taxation in Latin America takes a novel approach to the subject, using a framework that posits three dimensions for studying taxes—historical, relational, and transnational. The book argues that: first, taxation should be understood as a relational concept and tax systems as a function of a strategic nexus between the state and society; second, that any analysis of tax systems across Latin America needs to take historical legacies of national tax systems into account; and finally, that transnational phenomena have significant implications for tax regime dynamics in Latin America. The essays included provide diverse and representative insights for a new understanding of taxation in Latin America and highlight the bottlenecks to the development of sustainable tax systems in the region, exploring new links between academic research and policy-making.

This title is one of six releases from the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series. United States International Taxation embodies the dual goals established for the LexisNexis Graduate Tax Series: to provide graduate tax students with a solid foundation in the applicable rules and to enhance their skills in reading and applying complex statutes and regulations. To this end, the text relies very little on the often-times laborious analysis of cases and other sources that are secondary to the Code and the regulations. Instead, each chapter provides an overview of the substantive content, with emphasis on important issues that are not apparent from the language of the Code and regulations. This book contains teaching materials for law school courses in the United States federal income taxation of persons engaged in cross- border activities and transactions. It contains 21 separate Units that address fundamental concepts of residency and source, the taxation of United States persons (citizens, residents, and domestic corporations) on their activities within the United States, and the safeguard rules in place to curtail potentially abusive tax avoidance in the international context.

The field of behavioural economics can tell us a great deal about cognitive bias and unconscious decision-making, challenging the orthodox economic model whereby consumers make rational and informed choices. But it is in the arena of health that it perhaps offers individuals and governments the most value. In this important new book, the most pernicious health issues we face today are examined through a behavioral economic lens. It provides an essential and timely overview of how this growing field of study can reframe and offer solutions to some of the biggest health issues of our age. The book opens with an overview of the core theoretical concepts, after which each chapter assesses how behavioral economic research and practice can inform public policy across a range of health issues. Including chapters on tobacco, alcohol and drug use, physical activity, dietary intake, cancer screening and sexual health, the book integrates the key insights from the field to both developed and developing nations. Also asking important ethical questions around paternalism and informed choice, this book will be essential reading for students and researchers across psychology, economics and business and management, as well as public health professionals wishing for a concise overview of the role behavioral economics can potentially play in allowing people to live healthier lives.
