Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'd like us to think more about this:

lower taxes = protectionism

It might be a way to create a "wedge issue" like the Americans like to say. The downwards spiral of taxes is either empoverishing everybody for the short term profit of transnational companies, or amounts to stealing jobs from your neighbors.


Do you think that could work?
