    Part of the money Google cannot be tracked, for example, in cases where employees left the company and invest in the economy of various countries. In other cases, Google money can be tracked. Interestingly, the “Google effect” has even affected France, in particular, suppliers of delicacies and cheeses Bucheron and Pont-l'Évêque for Google.
