So, I thought we could dip our toe into politics here in the Parlor fairly easily with this post.
I've been following this story about Ford moving to Mexico to make new cars. They've done a fairly smart thing by not killing any current jobs, but making only new cars (and jobs) across the border.
I'm torn on this. On one hand, the current laws allow them to do this, and their public company exists to make the most amount of profit for their shareholders. (I'm assuming their move strategically aligns with cutting development costs.)
On the other hand... it feels a bit wrong to me. And to Donald Trump who wants to impose a 35% tax to Ford for doing this. Presumably Trump was shooting from the hip on this, but this is a valid point:
Should we tax companies who develop overseas and then turn around and "import" back into the country to sell?
