Corporate Desertion in the Face of the Enemy
I will no longer buy any tool from Stanley Works. In a time of national emergency, Stanley Works is re-incorporating in Bermuda, primarily to avoid taxes in the United States. Regardless of whether or not you think taxes are fair or unfair, the proper way for a company based in the United States to act is to attempt to change the law.
I will not shirk my duty during the United States national emergency. I will not assist Stanley Works in shirking its duty.
I would highly encourage you to do likewise.
- The Stanley Works Justification for Re-Incorporating in Bermuda
- The Great Evasion - Paul Krugman's NY Times Editorial on these Corporate Deserters.
- Putting profits over patriotism - Robert McIntyre's article in the American Prospect regarding these corporate deserters.
Here's a list of American companies that I have found out have reincorporated in other companies solely to avoid taxes. Contact them and tell them what you think.
As I find more Corporate Deserters, I'll list them here.
