Re: equal taxation
"It seems the easiest (not easy of course but simply easier) way to handle this would be for the various EU member nations to agree on a tax scheme unilaterally. No matter where your "profit" is made it is taxed at x%. This would equalize the playing field and each country would have to find some other way of attracting business by adding value."
Great way to get China companies profit, right? Just when the new tourists came from the boundary, you can demand x% tax from their "profit" 'no matter where it is made'.
I hope you meant countries inside EU because I doubt business Russia, China, US, Canada and other countries outside would agree to join the madness.
