5. "Super rich people are able to funnel their money off shore, as are corporations"

That's not a loophole, that's a fact of law. We can't force other nations to tax for us. "Hey, I need you to collect a half-trillion dollars from those guys and then give it over to us." is not a tax strategy. Even if these other nations collected the money (they won't, they make more money being a tax haven) they sure as heck wouldn't just hand it over like obedient simpletons.
