Carlos Cruz has a strategy for surviving the worst global recession in 60 years: pay less in taxes and pass the savings along to customers.
"I'm declaring half as much as I used to," said Cruz, 29, who runs a painting business in Madrid. "Prices have fallen by 30 percent and customers will choose you for a difference of as little as 50 euros ($67.70)," said Cruz, an Ecuadorian who has lived in Spain since 2001.
THIS ILLUSTRATES THE TRUTH THAT EVEN A SMALL BUSINESS PASSES TAXES IT COLLECTS FOR THE STATE TO ITS CUSTOMERS. 30% OF HIS COST IS GOVERNMENT TAX!!!
THIS IS WHY WHEN THEY RAISE TAXES AND REGULATIONS YOU GET LESS TAX REVINUE….
YOU CANNOT DENY HUMAN NATURE. WE ACT IN OUR OWN SELF INTERESTS WHICH IS GOOD.
THE LEFTIST ACT IN THE INTEREST OF THE STATE…
