20 ways how to F—k up an economy! No.2 Dramatically Raise the cost of living/business
20 ways how to F—k up an economy!
By our Local NT Government. (witnessed and written about by me, a lowly peasant, oops I mean citizen, but I don't want to steal their limelight, they did all the work... proudly.)
Don’t get me wrong, continuously I’ve discussed economic factors and events with several sitting and aspiring politicians and pundits from both sides of the isle.
To say Holes and Homes is their main concern would be an understatement, but forgiving the lack of economic and financial intelligence by both the local bureaucracy and the ignorant presented for us to vote for, what we have seen is that they can’t even get the Mining and Housing sector right, so we didn’t stand much of a chance for anything else.
For those blaming either side for the problems, I say, they have both been as bad as each other, but given that we currently have a government with a massive, albeit, unstoppable majority of 18 members and an opposition of 2, this current government could really make some changes to fix things, but lets reflect first on both sides F-ups.
I’m releasing one of these one at a time, then I’ll provide 20 ways they might make some positive changes, so in the new year we might be able to re-invigorate our currently sitting government to get back to work and maybe represent the people again, as most who know me can attest, I have a critical mind, with a positive outlook.
Number 2 - Dramatically raise the costs of living and doing business.
In 2013 oh 13 what a lucky number. That year our new un-elected chief minister or Backstabber in charge raised our power costs by almost 30%, he raised it first with a 5% tariff then raised it a further 20%. Basically, raising the cost of living after being given a mandate to lower it.
Yep! that’s how you chase away people both locals and new comers and devalue an entire economy for years to come. Oh Giles, hope your enjoying that Job with Gina, you bright Spark, oh shit turn it off, we probably cant afford it
