Apple "Apple, the world's most profitable technology company, doesn't design iPhones here. It doesn't run AppleCare customer service from this city. And it doesn't manufacture MacBooks or iPads anywhere nearby. Yet, with a handful of employees in a small office here in Reno, Apple has done something central to its corporate strategy: it has avoided millions of dollars in taxes in California and 20 other states." Sure, this is all legal for companies to do (and Apple obviously isn't alone) but it does show you how much sense of morality companies have. Answer: none. But hey, it's legal, and the law is never wrong, right?

helf,

"How is it immoral?"

To be honest, it would not be immoral if was got at through a democratic process and we genuinely believed that these large corporations should not pay taxes like others do. As much as corporate apologists like to treat corporations as morally innocent & non-responsible entities, that notion breaks down rather quickly considering how much they control the government these days.
