Niels Johannesen presents research on Phantom FDI at the Dutch Parliament

Niels Johannesen presents a recent working paper to the Finance Committee at the Dutch Parliament invited by parliamentarians who wish to end the role of the Netherlands in international tax planning.

The paper shows that the Netherlands has the largest FDI position in the world and that most of the foreign investment is into empty corporate shells with no links to the local economy.
