Lessons in Disloyalty: Eduardo Saverin and The Facebook IPO

There are 5 comments on the May 14, 2012, www.thenation.com story titled Lessons in Disloyalty: Eduardo Saverin and The Facebook IPO. In it, www.thenation.com reports that:

The move allows the thirty-year old Saverin to avoid paying a significant chunk of the taxes he will owe on the windfall coming his way with the impending Facebook IPO.

In making this decision, the Brazilian native did more than expose his blind disregard for all that his adopted country has done for him. He has made himself the poster child for the callous class of one-percenters who are all too happy to use national resources to enrich themselves, and then skate, or cry foul, when asked to pay their fair share. The story evokes the image of the marauding aliens from the movie Independence Day, who come to Earth to take what they can get before moving on to another planet.
