At PJMedia, Dalrymple writes of a curious and telling phrase in Le Monde:
…what does “fiscal dumping” really mean?
Here, fiscal dumping means levying a tax rate on corporate profits lower than that of other nations. Some might call this “competition.”
The misappropriation of the word tells us quite a lot about the European mindset, or at least about the European “political elite” mindset. It is thoroughly dirigiste. For the European elite, high taxes are an intrinsic good.
