I think Jake's "you" referred to my comment, and I should clarify that I despise tax arbitrage in all of its forms. I was not so much defending Ireland's approach to attracting industry as pointing out that there is no reason they have to adopt more of the neo-lib agenda just because they adopted this part. I would favor a gradual increase in corporate taxes on multi-nationals doing business in Ireland, up to just below the point where the advantage is eliminated.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
