Is that all? So we really are getting shafted in Europe then now that the US currency is so strong. We're paying around 10 euro more after tax. Maybe they'll only target you Americans so with the price hikes since they have already, silently hiked us up over the years.
I dunno. Governments add tax on top of what the company gets, but they do know that end price will affect sales. Hard to say if the companies will accept a smaller profit margin in Europe to offset the higher taxes and move more units or if they'll just apply the price increase across the board and see how the dice fall.
