United States Tax Subsidies under DISC, FSC and ETI Legislation within the Framework of the WTO

Since the 1970's a particular trade conflict between the United States and the European Union has been festering. This conflict concerns certain built-in fiscal subsidies in the US systems of corporation tax [under the DISC, FSC and the ETI legislation respectively] intended to promote US export trade. The trade conflict has been set against the different US and EU approaches to international taxation; and has been drawn out over the years in the form of a number of trade disputes, between the EU and the US, within the WTO dispute settlement system, and its predecessor the GATT 1947.
