    Why are they so desperate to catch these tax evaders? If deficits don't matter, why don't they just borrow the money they need?

    the Swiss would not have a problem if their banks only operated in Switzerland.

    that's why in 1944 they were able to resist similar FDR pressure. they made themselves vulnerable
