US M&A nonsense watch

I very much doubt that the empirical evidence supports Dan Mitchell on this:

Indeed, that [higher corporate taxation] is why American companies almost always become the subsidiary rather than the parent when there is a cross-border merger.

Almost always?!? UNCTAD’s stats for 2006 M&A say that US entities made $171.3b in purchases and $172.2b in sales.
