I hope SA moves fast like Apple because I doubt the sugar candy will last:
So corporations are stashing cash profits outside the USA to avoid taxes, Globally as it appears. Then they borrow funds from Goldman Sachs etal, pay hefty loan fees to Banks and get a discount loan 2% +/- with newly FED printed paper. Taxes are avoided in USA and the interest money from the loan is deducted from corporate taxes so the US Treasury income is decreased by these corporate actions. merry go round.
It's not a Ponzi scheme..It is a tax advantage taken by corporations. No different than rich individuals who take advantage of tax laws through attorneys and CPA's to keep from paying taxes. It also brings out the value of the Corporation. This also increases PPS. As individuals, we then pay taxes on our increased earnings. Just because average income people can't take advantage,don't condemn Billion Dollar Corps. from doing it..
