Walgreen inversion: These Alliance Boots are made for walkin'

A plan by Pfizer to acquire AstraZeneca in a move that could help the company lower corporate taxes puts a spotlight back on Walgreen (WAG +0.9%) to make a similar move.

Hedge funds have been pressing the board at Walgreen to back a relocation as part of its integration of Alliance Boots.

Speed is of the essence with politicians in Washington D.C. making noise about relocation "inversions" deals.

    With US corporate taxes higher than what they are in Russia and even higher that in Socialist Sweden, why would a company choose to be headquartered in America. They are in business to make money. Since I own Walgreen I want them to make all and keep all they legally can.
