If only, if only, we could all send ourselves invoices, from our offshore companies, made up after the real transactions are known, to wipe out all our taxable income - what a wonderful, fairyland world it would be. If only we could all disguise our incomes, down to zero, with ENRON & Arthur Andersen bookkeeping entries.
Riding to the rescue of Crooks Against Communism - against those evil social forces who want individuals and companies to pay the taxes we all pay, that keep our nations functional for business - comes Jack Lew, US Treasury Secretary, waving his mighty cavalry Sword of Truth.
With tax-unpaid $32 trillion hidden offshore, he will find many allies, from every corrupt corner of the world, to join his gang, "For they are Legion". Jack Lew wrongly states that taxing multinational US companies will take money from US taxpayers' pockets. But, it will not, as all the major companies are holding their massive cash reserves off-shore, legally free from US taxes, until and unless they bring the cash home to invest in the US, and end US austerity.

My letter to The Guardian 31 Aug 2016:
The USA, Ireland, UK and all Crown Territories tax-havens fully support Apple’s divine right to cut its EU tax bills by $13 billion – by sending itself no-fixed-abode cyberspace invoices to wipe out £150 billion of profits (Guardian headline 30 Aug 2016). All our businesses and citizens surely have the same legitimate rights. To ensure a “level-playing-field” and promote “small-government”, I trust you agree that we should all send ourselves fantasy E-invoices to wipe out all taxable income and thus zero our tax-bills.
