Yep. You're a real one.What a character.
Do you really believe that Apple is going to employ extra personel (no matter how few) just by being offered a tax break?
Look what they have been doing all the time: mimimizing costs everywhere (China?) to maximize profit. Give them a tax break? More profit!
You call looking for the lowest tax regime across the world fair and in the same post you moan about Apple evading US taxes. I though you were happy with that kind of behaviour.
What I meant with the job thing is this: the personel that is currently being employed in IRL is needed (or they wouldn't be there). The IRL tax deal has not created a single extra job. What apple does is saying: well, we could employ these people here in IRL or somewhere else in the EU. If you don't lower your taxes we will move elsewhere. In this way it will negotiate with different countries in the EU. In this way the different coutries are forced into a race to the bottom for taxes of big multinationals. This was possible because every EU country is on his own.
In the US this is much harder for Apple since there is one global taxation and this fiscal power play isn't that easy. So, who can blame the EU for doing the same?
BTW it could very well be that Apple is going to 'repatriate' some of the profits in IRL to the US as result of the EU actions. So your US tax evading problem (or do you applaud it??) is also getting resolved!
As for the Brexiteers: they are no longer our concern.
