Since you have never seemed to have run a business Teddy, yes, you're partially correct that expenditure increases are passed down to the consumer, but only to a point. One can only charge for goods and services what the market will bear. It is entirely possible to charge ones way out of business. If a business has an expenditure it cannot pass down to the consumer, the business must then find a way to slim down the delivery process to recoup the losses to stay in the black.<quoted text>
Don't be silly. I don't have to prove a premise, nor am I required to alter my statement to something else because you are unable to refute it as I've stated it.
Still more lame deflection.
My statement remains PROVEN: In the long run, all other things - WHICH INCLUDES OTHER EXPENSES - remaining equal, taxes levied on corporations are simply passed on to, and therefore paid by, their customers in the prices of their products.
You're dismissed. Again.
Economics 101 doesn't seem to be your forte' imho.
