Re: Taxing revenue is inherently unfair

I didn't advocate a solution, I just pointed out a problem with what the EU is proposing. Maybe there's a way to adjust it by the gross margin, to make it less unfair (which is about all you can hope for when taxing multinationals)

Though unless you could get a company to report its worldwide gross margin you'd have to figure out what to use. Trusting Google or Facebook not to game that isn't going to work, that's for sure.
