45. Nope

But what if one company cuts stock dividends instead of raising prices? What if another company cuts executive pay? Or finds a more efficient technology? Or sources materials differently? Or falls into a different category of taxation?


They could have undercut their competition using those methods before the tax. Not relevant to the issue.

The logic stands. Tax increases must be paid and it's a certainty that at least some of it falls on the consumer overall. You might find an exception to the rule rarely, but it's exactly that. Exception to raising prices.
