Re: Tax the firm not the tech.

The Multi-nationals do pay their fair share of taxes. All that are legally required. The problem lies with the politicians that have created the tax codes with plenty of perfectly legal loopholes that allow large companies to shift money around in a way that minimizes their tax burden. The accountants are earning their salaries. Don't blame Starbucks, Apple or Amazon, blame the elected. If a publicly traded company was found to not be taking advantage of tax loopholes, the stockholders would have the board out on their ear and charged with mis-managing the company to the detriment of those stockholders. In all likelihood, a large stockholder of a company like Apple is a large company themselves and knows all of the dodges too.
