A withhold up in Mongolia? Thoughts on the renewed tax debate around Oyu Tolgoi

Governments of mining countries are vulnerable to investors using double tax agreements (DTAs) as a means of avoiding paying taxes.

Interest expense on foreign loans is one such source of income. The DTA will specify how much tax the source country can collect on the interest paid by the local mining subsidiary, to its affiliate, usually in a…See More

What is the Presource Curse?

Resource-rich countries tend to experience slower economic growth and more social problems than do less-endowed countries—a phenomenon dubbed the “resource curse.” But it turns out that in many cases, economic growth begins to underperform long before the first drop of oil is produced; this we call the “presource curse.”In a recent research paper, we found that,…See More

Angola, Good Deals, and Mining the Data Deluge

Let’s imagine a country with a large resource deposit. In this country, the government grants a private company license to extract it. In a given year of production, the company extracts USD 1 billion worth of resources and then pays a 30% share—USD 300 million—through several channels of taxation to the host government. Citizens who observe similar numbers in company, government and watchdog reports are left wondering whether such a ratio is high or low—essentially, if it represents a good or…See More
