I will need to think more about it. My initial questions are:Now if you are unsure what a corporate inversion is, here are some links.
- Are people who buy Hyundai's unpatriotic and selfish since they spend their money outside the country?
- Are people who shop online to escape MN sales tax unpatriotic and selfish?
- Are people who open enroll or move to a "better" school district not community minded and selfish because they desert their old community that could really use their help?
- Can companies be sued by stockholders for spending more money than they have to?
- Why aren't America's business taxes competitive with Canada, Ireland, Scotland, etc? They aren't moving to Somalia..." G2A"Here is my opinion:
- my Honda was made in the US and my Suburban in Canada -it's a bit more complicated than it seems
- I shop on line not to escape taxes but because there is a larger selection of what I am looking for and I hate shopping. Although I do have to say many of my ABE book purchases were published in England originally
- no they aren't because they are just choosing how to invest in human capital
- boy I wish they could
- I have no clue but I will look" Jody"More than Assembly:
- Cars have many aspects to "American Content" and some Honda models are very high in domestic content. http://kogodnow.com/autoindex/
- You are like me, however many folks go to Best Buy to test drive the product. And then they go on line to get a better deal and avoid state taxes. What do you think of that behavior? I figure if I am in a MN store using their inventory and personnel, I will happily pay a bit more.
- My daughters attend Robbinsdale schools which are good but a bit rough at times. Many people move to or open enroll in Wayzara, Orono, Osseo(Maple Grove side), Privates, etc. The fact is that every "active academically focused well to do family" that leaves the community means fewer volunteers, fewer role good role model students, fewer funds, less money, etc. They are doing what they doing what they think is best for their child, but they are deserting a community where their presence was beneficial. When one family runs it isn't a problem, when thousands of families run it is a big problem.
- I hope not, every company would need to move as necessary to maximize profits. Or face law suits. Us investors like it when companies make profits and increase our retirement funds.
- I think you will find that these countries understand that attracting growing companies creates jobs.. And lower business taxes attract companies. And those employed citizens then pay more in taxes than what was lost." G2A"I presume the answer is a 'yes' then? None of the questions you asked were about Corporate Tax Inversion strategies, but they seemed to be attempting to be leading towards a "well, if liberals who buy hyundais can send their money oversees, so can corporations" argument." Jonathan"My answer is Maybe:What are your thoughts? Do you think poor and middle class citizens can act in their personal self interest and it is okay, however when companies or well to do people do it is betraying their community and country?" G2A

I think I'll need your help to push me off center on this one. If the US business taxes are not competitive, my stockholder /"competition is good" side says get moving. Yet the side of me that makes me fight for my school district and buy high content American products when possible finds the behavior disturbing.
