The Irish Subjugation - excellent analysis by Philipp Bagus


Nov 23, 2010
One might also ask why continental governments have set their corporation taxes so high, and suggest that other governments lower their own rates.

Tax competition is good for the European Union. When Ireland charges 12.5% and France charges 33%, yet Ireland still has roads and a police force and its bins get emptied, the people of France are entitled to ask what their money is being spent on.
I can see that the business side of the argument is pretty sound; it generates revenue for us that might otherwise go elsewhere and attracts companies to build here and provide our citizens with jobs.

I just wanted to explore if the rate was 'right' in an ethical sense and, if it isn't, should we expect ethical politicians to pursue our unethical policies?
