Descripción

The topic of tax either puts people to sleep, or makes them homicidal.

But now it's given the spoof treatment.  This new book, of 50 short ways to get Amazon to pay more tax, is available on the Kindle, Amazon's own e-reader, as well as from other outlets.

Author PK Munroe admits this is "a bit cheeky" but says it seemed the perfect place for it.  "If the book does well, they will pay more tax, maybe."

The book includes ideas for "consumer disobedience" to embarrass the multinational giant to pay more tax, including:

• dressing up as a tax inspector and hanging around Amazon's offices,
• encouraging them to pay by letting them re-name the river Trent as 'The Amazon',
• setting up barrage balloons on the roof of your house to interfere with deliveries by Amazon drones.

Amazon's strict treatment of its warehouse employees, whose toilet breaks are limited and timed, is harped upon, with one suggestion that similar rules should apply at Amazon's shareholder meetings.

Possibly the shortest ebook on the planet, this is priced as cheaply as possible, partly to avoid the author having to pay too much tax himself.

Although UK and US politicians claim to be annoyed about this, they can only blame themselves, since it's their laws and loopholes that make it all perfectly legal.

Observers agree that Amazon are not minimising tax in order to bath in champagne like old-style plutocrats. It's worse - with dirt-cheap prices, vast earnings, low tax, huge investment ... one day, there will be nobody else left to buy stuff from.  World domination seems to be the plan.

So until the tax laws change, and don't hold your breath for that, what can we do? Well, don’t forget that Starbucks, another tax haven maven, made a voluntary contribution of some £20 million in
