Depardieu Should Have Moved to Mexico
Andres Oppenheimer, Miami Herald
French movie star Gerard Depardieu made the wrong choice by seeking Belgian and Russian citizenship to avoid paying higher taxes in France. He should have moved to Mexico. Recent studies by the United Nations and the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development show that the super-rich in Mexico and several other Latin American countries pay much less in taxes than their European counterparts or those in the United States. In general, Latin America is one of the world’s regions where the ultra-wealthy pay the least taxes, the studies say.
