Rebecca Blood mentions an article in the Economist. It is about governments trying to tax corporate profits, and multi-national companies cleverly avoiding it, by switching things around between countries. There is this little tidbit of information:
60% of all international trade is between subsidiaries of the same company.
Seems shocking somehow. Big companies just moving things around between different parts of themselves. I can guess that most of them are equally good at moving their profits around, until there's just a sufficiantly miniscule amount left to show, in a jurisdiction where corporations already pays little or no taxes.

Hmm, at this point, probably some huge Mexican chiahcimngas platter would be my last meal preference. As of late, it's a cuisine I've not been eating much, like it though I do.
