Doobie Doobie Dubai
In the "your tax dollars at work" department, Halliburton today announced they will be moving their headquarters from Houston to Dubai, UAE. Halliburton, well known for winning an astonishing number of no-bid contracts from the U.S. government, reported a 40% decrease in profits this last quarter. But they're still rich enough to move to Dubai, where they'll enjoy a large break on taxes. Wait, they had that in Houston. So why Dubai? The climate man, the climate.
