American manufacturers are focused on investment, expansion and job creation. One important way to do this is by expanding their customer base. And, with 95 percent percent of the world’s population outside the United States, it is not surprising that American companies are looking at markets outside the United States. More business translates into more jobs and stronger companies. So why is the Administration so intent on punishing companies that operate in the global market place? A new video from the Tax Foundation explains in simple terms how overseas business benefits U.S. companies and their workers and how, in contrast, misguided U.S. tax policies make it much harder for them to compete.
