|Unemployment in Europe (23/02/13 22:19:37)||Reply|
What to be done? Who am I to answer - but perhaps.
My country is ridden with political correctness and New Public Management - meaning that sharing money is better than earning money (which is taken for granted), and management is more valued than work. This country pays out annually about 1% og GBP in developmental aid - and most of it is a disaster because it ends up in corruption - lining the pockets of the Bosses.
But there is one - maybe one single -project that was a success, according to my sources. It was an educational programme - teaching the technics of taxing Big Business of Kenya.
The target was the mining industry - so instead of exporting all the profits - a sizeable portion of it ends in the Kenyan National Treasury. And it's their own money - all of it - and earned by themselves.
So - the lesson to be learned from the cold North could be: tax those who have money. I can tell you from experience that my government knows the howtos. .no has oil, but the oil companies are taxed to the limit - which is a little bit below the level that would have discouraged them to go on investing. And simple salary earners - like myself - feel the presence of effective tax collection plus a VAT of 25% and extreme duties on cars and alcohol (that's the moralism and political correctness in two words - not forbidden, just taxed to the limit).
Don't let the lobbies rule the country. You can't afford it. Neither can the US of A.
