Submission + - Windfall Profits Tax on Google..?

bricko writes: "Should there be a Windfall tax on Google..? ce/070212/windfall_profits_tax_some_mode.htm — Exxon made 37 Billion on sales of 397 Billion for return on sales of about 10%. Google made 3 billion on sales of 10 billion for a return on sales of 30%. Should these proposed "windfalls taxes" be spread more widely, or just on the "perceived" evil companies. If 10% return in 30% return MORE evil? And would Intel's 20% return. twice that of Exxon be twice as evil..? Since the last time windfalls profits taxes were implemented resulted in an 8% reduction in product it good policy to start with, or mostly a politicians wet dream."
