Apple appears to be making efforts to prove its worth to the world at large. Especially concerning benefiting the home environment, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple has vowed to make waves. Tim is a decent law-abiding citizen who does not have the psychopathic ego of most other multinational heads.
According to Politico, he is humble enough to acknowledge the fact that he owes his homeland what has been its due since day one. And to prove this point he is willing to appear in Washington himself to share in the congressional hearings regarding the taxation system. The Apple head honcho claims that his company has always looked to the interests of the USA. He further made the statement that every year Apple provides so many new jobs for US citizens. With over 50,000 jobs spread out through 50 states, Apple sees to it that the United States gets a lion’s share of the profits that are raked in.
Apple has faced dire issues over its e-books sales in China. The accusation that has been hurled against Apple is that it had started fixing prices instead of letting the retailers decide the sales point figures. Besides that the tax quandary is something in which Apple leads by $100 billion in foreign assets.
Yet the CEO is a perfect gentleman who not only wants his firm, the richest in the world, to be taxed (though fairly and not exorbitantly) but is all ready to go to Washington to be a part in the game of changing laws. While the late Steve Jobs didn’t want to have anything to do with the political center of the United States of America, that is not the case with Tim Cook who considers it his duty to participate in the tax debate.
Also he made a recent revelation regarding the latest Mac model that will grace the invention lab of Apple. The new Mac will be for the US market and will help in job creation as well as cause an increase in home-grown products. Over $100 million in domestic profits will make the government very happy and probably end the criticism the focus of which up until now has been Apple Incorporated.
