Dan Mitchel explains cogently why US extra-territorial taxation penalizes American businesses and makes it impossible for them to compete on a level playing field with foreign companies.

This penalizes American companies for hiring US citizens overseas, not to mention how it destroys the lives of US citizens abroad. On that, read Roger Conklin. Hat tip Isaac Brock Society.
