in Are You Kidding?, Economy, Labor

Here’s an audio/video project cobbled together from publicly available information… a reaction to President Barack Obama’s emphasis on job creation in his “State of the Union” speech last week.

Just want to point out that American corporations are creating plenty of jobs all the time!

Gee Shane- this wasn’t nearly as much fun as your satires. I would like to know these companies’ tax rate here. Google pays 5% taxes because it is registered in Holland.

Our Prez, in his State of the Union address talked about maintaining a technological edge to remain competitive in global market. He didn’t say very much about policies that enable multi-national corporations to establish a presence where labor is cheap. That’s a helluva competitive edge…

Yes, I always wondered about “free trade agreements” under which citizens are still bound by national borders but corporations hop-skotch from country to country. That’s not NAFTA, that’s GRAFTA (ba-da-boom-tiss)

Shane, you only feel this way because you are a part of the old economy and are still doing your own work. You need to outsource your work.

We have the highest corporate rates in the world.

Germany taxes internal consumption not all production and does not tax profits made on goods sold outside of Germany. Gee, I wonder if this is why Germany exports 30% of what it’s well paid workers produce? If you want to export jobs all you have to do is tax profits made overseas.

That is exactly what we need to do- tax profits made overseas.

Man, I thought Google was so cool. But tax dodging is so weak.
