 CTJ Testimony on Taxation of Multinational Corporations
Multinational corporations, whether American- or foreign-owned, are supposed to pay U.S. income taxes on the profits they earn in the United States.
Once a multinational company makes its opening tax bid, the IRS must attempt to determine--through adversarial proceedings--what are the flaws in the multitude of transfer prices the company has assigned to its international dealings.
The best way for governments to resolve their claims to tax revenues from the income of multinational enterprises is through a mechanism that allocates the worldwide income of unified business enterprises by formula among the countries in which those enterprises operate.

 SSRN-Codetermination and Corporate Governance in a Multinational Corporation by Viet Dinh
The article analyzes employee codetermination in corporate governance by comparing American and German systems of corporation and labor law and assesses how the systemic differences affect the internal governance of a multinational corporation.
It examines what happens when the two systems of corporate law and labor relations merge and consequently come into conflict?as when a German corporation merges with an American corporation to form a truly multinational entity.
The prospect for opportunistic alliance among managers, shareholders, and domestic employees suggests that codetermination in a multinational enterprise imposes distributional costs on foreign workers and perhaps also efficiency loss for the corporation.
