It also seems that defending Amazon by saying all companies do it is misleading. Amazon has designed its business around tax-evasion: Amazon.com: America’s #1 Tax Evader?

Starbucks, Google, and Amazon Face Investigation For 'Immoral' Tax Evasion in the UK

Quote:
Amazon has paid 1.8m, despite bringing a total revenue of 200m in the UK in 2011.
That's less than 1%, and they earned 200m How is that defensible?

The strategy of Amazon and other companies like them doesn't surprise me. What surprises me is that people defend them. They are stealing from the community. It's daylight robbery!
