Estimated costs to administer FATCA and chase those 6 million- billions of dollars forever. Net benefit to be derived at the best is most likely zero but is more than likely to be negative because the taxes collected are not likely to ever exceed the cost of FATCA compliance.  Of course we will never know because the U.S. very conveniently refuses to establish any criteria for costs calculation.
