47. Your (sic) not understand this...

 

A corporation makes a product. They factor in the costs of production, local taxes, federal taxes, transportation, etc. Then they figure how much profit they can make on the product after all the expenses.

At this point in history, US corporations are paying the lowest taxes in history.

They simply figure a higher profit, since their taxes are so low. They certainly aren't reducing their profits because of those low taxes and then passing the savings on to the consumer, are they?

And then they offshore the profits.

You wrote.... " costs go down via competition..." ??? American capitalism has solved a lot of that messy "competition" stuff. Dow and Monsanto are merging. There are 6 corporations that control the US media.
