People Avoid Taxes? Or The Law Of Unintended Consequences

This article is a bit old but its been on my back burner for a long time and its just time to get rid of it.

Basically its how companies quickly found a loophole in the latest tobacco tax increase and are exploiting it as any sane company would do. This shows us that behavior is driven in many cases by the law. It applies pressure in one area, so people move on to another area until the Gov makes more laws which just alter peoples behavior. And of course it isn’t in just this one area, nor does it apply to businesses only. There are tens of thousands of pages of law that govern our every day activities. Its enough to make one wonder how much different a really free society would be?
