Re: Interesting

If we 'lost' Amazon we would presumably still want tat. It's hard to see that there would be a loss in either jobs or taxes. I'm as hypocritical as the next person (unless I'm standing next to a politician) and I buy from Amazon. Doesn't mean I don't think that the world might be a better place if I got all my tat from a local neighbourhood tat shop - one that might pay rent to a landlord, fair wages to it's employees and tax to the government. And one that might reinvest its profits buying goods or services from its neighbours, rather than squirrelling it away in a tax haven.
