But we already know their response: move their operations to smaller countries that can operate on lower expenses and can therefore predate larger countries with lower tax rates. Your idea would just accelerate that process. Remember, it's cheaper for them to weasel their way around taxes than to actually pay them. Probably will always be that way, meaning it's going to be damn hard to get them to pay anything worthwhile. Same is true of anyone of importance, as they'll just switch to untaxable methods of payment.
