    I don't know how much help I could be, but here goes...

    A high budget deficit will lead to national debt. This debt carries interest which means two things. One is that future money that could be spent on infrastructure that businesses benefit from or tax breaks for businesses will now be diverted into paying of the debt and the interest it has accumulated. The second is if we're already running a deficit (which we are) how long until the government has to drastically change it's economic policies to avoid financial disaster. Would you want to set up or expand a business in a country where the government might just one day decide with good reason that they need to triple corporation tax?

    Surely you don't get a better example than Greece? Possibly Argentina's government collapse around 2001.

    I don't do Business so I have no idea if that's any help to your essay or not.

    Vodafone! They're Britains largest business and regularly avoid paying tax. The Guardian article is your best bet as it's a respected news outlet although thisismoney is well known it's owned/joint with the Daily Mail.
