Buying books without Amazon
In December 2012 we launched our campaign to boycott Amazon in response to the growing anger amongst consumers, smaller traders and elected politicians about the company’s systematic tax avoidance. Their irresponsible attitude to tax has distorted markets and contributed to the erosion of our public services.
Four years on, despite Amazon’s apparent online omnipotence, thousands of people are now boycotting Amazon. The following special report includes product guides (to e-readers, e-books, bookshops and online booksellers) which have been designed to help you in your quest to challenge the retail Goliath.
We cover a range of issues from an in-depth look at company tax haven use to the environmental impacts of e-readers.
