Posted by ALEX TEES on January 2, 2012 at 1:35 AM Comments comments (30)



Now in 2020  we have a relatively low unemployment rate ; it is proposed that Governments should in fact be planning to abolish this scourge............

It is proposed for Australia  that ;

1.All Unemployment benefits/Centrelink employment related benefits be abolished.

2.Money otherwise spent on funding the payments and its administration could be utilised to commence A GOVERNMENT GURANTEED EMPLOYMENT CORPORATION. (GGEC)

3.Other funding could be derived from a further increase in tax on tobacco and alcohol ,initial budgeted seed funding of a low budgeted nature from the Federal government by way of a start up grant ,the formation of an Unemployment insurance system which would guarantee employment at a reasonable min wage for every one;existing employees would pay a tax deductable compulsory small percentage insurance premium as would all major employers and gradually smaller employers at a small percentage rate.

4.GGEC would invest all funds received and this would assist to fund this system.

5.GGEC would primarily place employees in receipt of a GGEC claim with private enterprise in needed areas but also in productive areas of State,federal and local government.

6.In time GGEC would also fund training and re training of all employees made unemployed as well as placement etc and would also subsidies childcare for sol parents and their re training also.

7.Another possible source of funding could possibly be a New Drugs Tax..all persons found with any quantity of illegal drugs would be issued an administrative tax notice assessment in addition to any possible criminal penalties through from the smallest amounts of so called light drugs right upto larger proportionate assessments for larger amounts and other harder drugs.The tax could be collected through the now very efficient parking fines and other systems which already in exist in NSW via the State Debt recovery office...................

Carbon taxes ..Mining Taxes..in Australia

Posted by ALEX TEES on February 28, 2011 at 5:27 AM Comments comments (30)

it’s possible to pick out some consequences in advance. Such as the further distortion of the Australian economy. You don’t have to precisely know how people and markets will interact to know that a carbon tax will make the Australian economy even more lopsided. Although we’ll admit there will be other consequences we haven’t considered too.

Bloomberg News reports the comments made by Bluescope Steel CEO Paul O’Malley:

“This is clearly economic vandalism. It clearly says we don’t want manufacturing in Australia.”

Mr. O’Malley is talking his own book. He has a vested interest. But he’s also completely right.

Government red tape and trade unions have already succeeded in banishing productive industry from Australian shores.

And now government taxes and Green Party socialist statism is set to banish the rest of the Australian manufacturing offshore.

What’s left?

A huge mining sector that is left to prop up the economy. And a huge services sector which serves as the outlet for people to spend the credit created by the banks from the mining sector.

There’s nothing in between. And of course, if the government and Greens have their way, there won’t be much left of the mining sector if the “super profits tax” is revived.
