Because of the South China Sea issue, there has been a call to not buy Starbucks,  KFC , McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Burger King and alike.
Do you think there will be a notable response?

At least people who go there as genuine customers will be able to get a seat and not have to compete with those who are only there to sleep, use the wi-fi or a/c

There will be talk, but no action. They were gonna boycott anything Japanese during the protests, but what did it amount to?
Chinese love their fast food.....
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

And put your own country fellowmen out of work and pay? Who would be that stupid to propose?

Most of the big US corporations pay naff all tax around the world.  

The best solution is a simple flat tax on money through the till, no deductions, nothing, just give us 30% or whatever you turn over.  Given that fast food outlets work on a 300 to 500% margin on the cost of produce it will not hurt too much.

Companies like Apple should be paying similar levels of tax. Their profiteering is outrageous IMHO.
