There are up to 1 million jobs and tens of billions of dollars in investment at risk because of proposed changes to the tax policy affecting income earned by globally engaged U.S. businesses. A new EY study published by the National Association of Manufacturers finds that potential changes to the Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income regime—or GILTI, as it’s called—would have an overall destructive effect on U.S. employment and economic growth.

The negative consequences would include:

1 Million

Jobs Lost


In Lost Economic Activity
