In an op-ed for The Daily Caller published on March 13, 2012, Cato Institute's Chris Edwards highlights MLI's work on corporate income tax by director of research Jason Clemens:

In 2009, Canada was dragged into a recession by the elephant economy next door, and that knocked the wind out of corporate tax revenues. However, it is remarkable that even with a recession and a tax rate under 20 percent, tax revenues as a share of GDP have been roughly as high in recent years as they were during the 1980s, when there was a much higher rate. Jason Clemens of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute notes that Canadian corporate tax revenues have been correlated with corporate profits, not the tax rate.

The op-ed, "What policymakers can learn from Canada", was also picked up by the National Centre for Policy Analysis' Daily Policy Digest in the U.S.
