The thing your little mind fails to grasp is that what motivates economic behaviour is greed - let me get as much as I can for as little as I have to pay.
And so does the current tax system not include the factor of greed? If profits were that easy to increase, then why aren't profits higher now? Why don't businesses simply decide to increase profits now, dumbass? The reason which your limited intellect prevents you from understanding is that while greed is the upward pressure on prices, competition is the downward pressure on prices, and the result is an equilibrium. But now you're stuck with explaining to all of us why it is that under a different paradigm, profits will be that much greater.
So Nancy, why don't you answer those simple questions I've asked? Why do you run away from them like a little school girl? You're always full of evangelical pronouncements, but you can never seem to answer those simple questions. Why is that?
Companies do not lower prices to reflect cost-savings unless their analysis tells them that doing so will make them more money than just keeping the savings to themselves.
No shit. That's called competition, and for the same reasons that when costs which are common to all competitors rise will force prices to rise, when those same costs drop, prices will drop. The less profitable among them will lower the price a little, then others will follow suit, and before you know it, the price equilibrium between profits and competition will return. This is pretty simple stuff, and yet even a simplton like you can't get it.
So explain to us why a NST tax system is inherently more profitable for bsuiness.
