WSJ: Buffett's Berkshire to pay U.S. tax rate on Burger King investment;
pure tax rate comparison misleading as some states have low corp rate

From article comment section: "The real benefit to headquartering in Canada isn't the corporate tax rate, which is actually competitive with the rate Burger King pays in Florida. It's because Canada doesn't practice top-up taxation as the U.S. does -- this means profits earned by subsidiaries outside the U.S. will in the future be taxed only at the rate of the host country. The U.S. deems it proper to add its own taxation to that paid elsewhere. Thus this deal will allow Burger King (and Tim Hortons, which already operates abroad) to grow faster than competitors based in the U.S. Warren Buffett gets it. Will other US corporations?"

They score! Tim Hortons, Burger King agree to merger deal;
New company Canada-based; Tim Hortons shareholders get $$ + stock

The combination of Canada's international coffee/doughnut juggernaut with the growing international presence of Burger King will create world's third largest fast-food company with combined global sales of $23 billion and have 18,000 locations in 98 countries. The new combined company would be based at the current headquarters of Tim Hortons, in Oakville, Ontario, just west of Toronto. Burger King would continue to maintain its global home in Miami.

"It’s pretty easy to see that you’re going to be able to print a house, and that it’s going to be different and better that what we are making now, the old-fashioned way." 3D systems 'print' objects by laying down thin layers of metal, plastic or ceramic, one atop another, to create a three-dimensional finished product. As the technology improves, larger and faster printers will drive up demand for the raw materials, according to an expert. With key patents for 3D printing technology expiring this year, the machines are expected to become more common in manufacturing industry. ~ NDTV
