Re: Just dumb
Apple and other companies should NOT be blackmailing nations with a choice between investment (including jobs) or paying tax. They, like most companies in the world, should be providing the first and paying the second. Anything else IS an unfair advantage.
Where exactly will those investments and jobs go? Is another European country likely to offer a similar deal? If not, and they have no base in Europe I'd imagine they can't do business here. That's the choice they should and hopefully do now face.
