    One legal way to avoid taxes, and moral, is when you go to the expense of moving the jobs overseas. Why do that?

    It’s astonishing, isn’t it; they extol the virtues of unfettered capitalism but then claim it’s immoral when capitalists figure that sending jobs overseas is more efficient i.e. their profits are greater.

    Got to make sure they can’t leave with it. Take 90% and tell them they can go or they can keep it and get taxed for their wealth.

    Isn’t that’s why people go to business, it is no secret. The why is because businesses leave because they can’t make a profit.

    The best example of great management is Apple. They didn’t move any jobs, they moved their profit centre. First, they went around negotiating, and Ireland made the low bid of 2%, so Apple moved all their profits to Ireland, so those profits are tax exempt in the US. No jobs moved, just profits. Ireland doesn’t get any jobs or rent on a posh office, just 2% of all Apple profits. A great win-win situation, and an example of great management.

    It used to be that people went into business because they had a skill. They could make something others wanted, so they made it and sold it for a price determined by what they paid for material, their time invested and a reasonable profit. A long time ago. Now it is produce at the lowest possible cost, sell as high as the market will bear and stuff your pocket as fast as you can.

    Bloody good point. An excellent display of capitalism at its finest. I don’t understand how anyone for free, unfettered markets can complain about it. Should be in all good text books.

    IMO “tax avoidance” is what high tax states and nations claim when earners use legal tax rules to take deductions the government put into their tax laws. It is legal and moral to pay no more tax than is owed legally.

    capitalism is the goose that lays golden eggs for society; all the improved living enjoyed by government keeping its greedy hands off earnings is to the credit of capitalism; which also has more charitable giving than in anti-capitalism nations.

    @disgustedtaxpayer. Thank you Ayn Rand. Ummm…government is what allows capitalism to exist and function. look at the highway system that is the backbone of this country. What built that? Private funding or public taxes? It takes money to run a society and every person or corporation must pay to fund that operation. We can argue over the priorities, but regardless, it takes cash. OMG imagine the world if all contract disputes were judged by private paid entities? Wow…no possibility of bias there at all…
