The great mobile phone robbery
« on: May 23, 2015, 04:50:20 AM »

Surely everyone is aware that cellphones are all made in China.

Why then do Apple, Samsung, HTC etc charge over 500 quid for a decent phone?

I would never buy a name brand phone (My Sony was a gift) when I can but the same tech for a fraction of the price.



A 2 minute search on DH Gate came up with this little gem. Beats fuck out of the I Phone in every way possible.

I'd rather buy a pair of Nike's knowing that the 5 year old who made them got paid a bowl of rice and the materials are worth about a fiver.

Talk about a fuckin con.

I would have my doubts about OZ being the biggest buyers of mobiles.

Mind you, China's close by.

It was a stat on how many dead phones people have in their possession and asking people to hand in their old unused phones for refurbishment.. I thought it was news hype and no doubt it probably was news hype!

A quick primer on how capitalism works. You control the means of production via patents and other methods. You undercut competitors to drive them out of business or force them to sell their business to you. You keep making it difficult for competitors to stay in business and build a monopoly in your industry as much as you can before government regulators take notice. Then comes the money shot (when there's hardly any competitors left) - you jack up the price to whatever you want for things that everybody wants or needs. The few competitors left will follow your lead and charge the same prices and it will be perfectly legal to gouge consumers as long as there is no 'collusion'.

Thankfully, these days we have the internet and can undercut the monopolistic retailers. If you want to make a killing, find a Chinese vendor on Alibaba who can supply you with hundreds of units and start selling them on eBay or at your local street corner. Maybe T-Mobile will buy out your entire supply and put you out of business.

Income tax for whom?? The Chinese supplier, the retailers or the individual seller?

In the USA the individual seller should incorporate as a business for limited liability protection and favorable tax treatments and deduct just about everything as business expenses. They can go on trips to China to "meet their supplier", hire their family to do menial work, pay them a salary and deduct it it all to offset any pernicious 'below the line' profits and thus, lower the taxes.

Kind of like many non-profit charities do but not to the point of outright fraud. Of course, charities and churches don't even have to worry about paying taxes so that's even better if you just want to commit fraud and have others pay for your bills under the pretext of providing them with salvation or helping out sick people.

The big service providers and retailers like Apple and Verizon have accountants, lobbyists, offshore companies and tax loopholes so they pay effective rates of 0% in income taxes relative to their profits.

Every single person you have listed has to pay income tax.

They're also now clamping down globally on income tax avoiders! People doing business on the WWW.

The gig is up.

"Charities" and religious institutions don't. Ask Scientology.

Illegal tax avoidance is downright stupid. Why risk jail time and fines when you can virtually achieve the same result and do the same thing legally? That's what accountants and tax lawyers are for. In case the second link I provided above didn't penetrate yet through the thick layer of gravy inside your head.

I don't want anything to do with tax... I used to do our taxes until GST came into being and then I said, "it's all too much for me, go see an accountant."...

So anything even remotely to do with tax, I run a million miles...

I shouldn't be like that but rules ruin my creative streak.

Illegal tax avoidance

That's called 'Tax Evasion'

Tax avoidance is having a good accountant

no, we use the term "Tax Minimization" ( which is legal obviously ) Tax avoidance is the same as Tax Evasion here in Australia....

Then move to Africa. Though even there, a local warlord is likely to collect a 'tax' from you. Taxes and slavery is how society was built up from the ashes. We no longer have slavery so guess what? You need to pay some fucking taxes!

We pay too much tax in Australia AND support the world's despots AS WELL.
