Want a low-tax, business-friendly country?

Nicholas Kristof offers such a paradise in "Our Fantasy Nation?", New York Times, 2011-06-04.

The country?  Pakistan!  How many low-tax advocates are ready to move there?  Oh gosh!  I don't see any hands raised.

Kristof goes on to write about all the low-tax countries where there are insufficient police because the well-off hire their own security, no public transit because a Mercedes and a private airplane do just fine, no or little public education because private schools abound.

Remember that old nasty about "going back to where you came from"?  Why not a new one about "going where they practice what you believe"?
