VIDEO: Offshore Profit Sharing
by Senate Subcommittee
Monday Jun 3rd, 2013 7:57 AM
Reagonomics and unfettered speculative capitalism are ideas whose time has long passed but still hold sway and make a mess of everything. Apple shifted 64% of profits ($78 billion over four years) to entities (AOI and AOS) in Ireland with no employees and no activities. Corporations avoiding paying taxes is a destructive business model. Should we close unjustified loopholes?
Senate Subcommittee on Offshore Profit Sharing, chairman Sen Carl Levin, May 21, 2013.
The revenue crisis and the war spending crisis are products of tax evasion, tax havens, cooked intelligence and myths of self-correcting markets, corporate beneficence, beneficial inequality and trickle-down prosperity.
