 @klynch Thanks, that's what I though. The article did not make that clear. People got confused that this applies everywhere. @sarahcuda you might want to make clear in the article the news was just about US, not the other countries.

Their sign up form seems to be only for the US, so is this absolutely correct or is the instant thing for only one of the 200 countries in the world?

 @FarhadManjoo  The Swiss invented the web and Estonians did Skype. So what?

 @FarhadManjoo  So what's your suggestion, how should one act if he has decided a long ago to move to another country, build a new home and contribute to the economy and society there: what should they do with their historic citizenship?

 @kmcgrady  @FarhadManjoo Yes, this is a point many journalists and bloggers miss. His decision to move to Singapore and stay there was taken a long ago and has nothing to do with anti-entrepreneurial US taxation. Making assumptions why someone chooses a new home and citizenship without discussing all the reasons and history behind it is just yellow journalism.

 @FarhadManjoo  Coming from a country with no capital gains tax: absolutely. It makes miracles for the economy and entrepreneurship.

 @FarhadManjoo  @ChrisRossini But he is paying everything according to his agreement with America, isn't he?

 @dave Why is stealing indecent? Who is John Galt? Probably not the right place to go into discussion of libertarian vs social politics here :) Coming from Estonia with no capital gains tax though, what Saverin does sounds reasonable, especially if he pays his US taxes as legally required.

What's indecent is America having a capital gains tax.
