Globalization has forever changed the competitive landscape, but U.S. corporate tax policy has not kept up.

Regardless of the plan, there are likely to be winners and losers by industry and company.

  • Will it be closer to the Republicans' destination-based cash-flow tax system or the administration's campaign plan?
  • Will border adjustment be included, or expensing future interest on debt eliminated?
  • Does it need to occur in parallel with personal tax reform?
