The New Luddites

Today, Ned Ludd and his followers are best known from the term Luddite: a much needed contribution to the English language that expresses fear or hatred of technology. But while the word has since taken on the connotations of a back-to-nature, Druidic-like disdain for modernity, it should be remembered that the original motivations for the Luddite movement were purely economic. The textile artisans saw their livelihood threatened by advances in mechanization, and lashed out to protect their own interests.

Freedomworks Issue Analysis: Marketplace Fairness Act

The Marketplace Fairness Act would allow the states to compel online retailers to collect taxes on remote sales, increasing the cost of doing business and damaging competition unfairly.The Act places burdensome administration costs on some of the country's most innovative retailers, regulating them in a way that is at once discriminatory and harmful to economic growth.

Internet Taxes Don't Make Markets Fairer

The issue of how to handle sales conducted remotely over the internet has been a thorny one for lawmakers, as they struggle to adapt policies to rapidly advancing technologies. Nine states currently collect sales tax on out-of-state, online transactions, but a new bill dubbed the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 would expand this to a national mandate. The argument behind such legislation is that local retailers are placed at an unfair disadvantage, because their prices must include sales tax whereas out-of-state vendors are under no such compulsion.

Battle Over the Internet Sales Tax Intensifies

In recent weeks, several states have debated imposing an Internet sales tax on businesses operated within the state. California has already pushed through a new Internet sales tax, with Governor Jerry Brown signing the legislation and hailing it as a ‘tax revenue’ increaser. As with all government actions, there have been some unintended consequences with the new California law; Amazon and O.co have shut down their affiliates based in California, taking thousands of jobs with them.
