Or the Seychelles?

The latest in a line of opinion pieces in the Wall Street Journal presenting the ill-effects of the USA's system of taxation for overseas citizens, this one from investment banker Ken Moelis --

Congress should borrow from U.K. policy and provide an immediate tax holiday to any American citizen who takes up residence and works in Africa for more than one full year.

Is someone planning to retire to Mauritius?
