Sådan bekæmper vi skattely

I lørdags bragte Information en kronik af undertegnede, som gengives her (med tilladelse fra Information). Kronikken indeholder en diskussion af nogle af de væsentligste udfordringer ved at regulere ‘skattely’, og hvilken retning, man kan kigge i, hvis man vil imødekomme disse.
