Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To me it seems that if a corporation is allowed to work within the EU it should have to establish a company here (and not in the Bahamas). And if a company once established can work in all EU-countries then the corporate tax should be the same (possibly federal), the alternative being (at least over a threshold) having to establish seperate corporations in seperate countries.

Anyway, back to our world. I think establishing a common lowest level of corporate tax would be a good thing, as otherwise I think it will be gradually lowered over the years in a race to the bottom. And I think US companies would prefer Ireland anyway, because there people speak english even among themselves which is a big difference from speaking english when they accomodate you.
