I recently purchased an old vw van, and in my researching parts and info, I came across the story of the chicken tax in various placed.
It got me thinking about tax loopholes, and the extreme efforts, and massive waste companies will go through to avoid import taxes.
I was under the impression that raising taxes on in ports would be a great tool for recreating American manufacturing jobs, but apparently I was
wrong, as per this example.
Now I am not sure where I stand. I am waiting for other opinions, and informed takes on the matter.
I know that wiwipedia isn't the end all be all... But I read the entry, and it seems pretty complete judging from what I have read.
Thanks for your input, in advance.
