Pres of France Example- Pakistani Leaders should follow in Tax, Wage & Educ

  • New Elected President of France - A great example for Pakistani Political Leadership to follow in Tax, Wage and Education for next election compaign and next government.

    Francois Hollande has setup couple of important policies, which include broad debt reduction effort by promising to slap 75% tax rate on millionaires, raising minimum wage, lowering retirement age and focusing on education by promising to add 60K teachers.

    The 75 percent tax rate that French presidential frontrunner Francois Hollande wants to slap on income over 1 million euros will be kept in place for many years, in line with the broader debt reduction effort, a top adviser to the Socialist candidate said on Tuesday.

    He wants to raise the minimum wage, hire 60,000 more teachers and lower the retirement age from 62 to 60 for some workers.

    Bhai we all know our leaders don't have national agenda, they just follow personal agendas. Do u think mian sb or zardari sb can do it? No way!

  • Kash there was a pco judge called ch. Iftikhae who had taken a suo moto against bulk hiring of teachers and had created a sizzling media scandal against sitting government.

  • @abdulhameed

    Don't you wish that IK/PTI makes a similar commitment to deliver in first couple of years?

  • @sipahi

    yes, i do want PTI to announce drastic changes (though not 75%), and i m waiting for their fiscal policy.

  • @abdulhameed

    Why not 75%??

    Will the Tycoons of Pakistan not allow that?

    It is about time that those who have made millions on the backs of poor and middleclass pay their Past-dues.

  • @sipahi

    i think first we need to create the friendly environment for the businesses and then ask them for heavy taxes, otherwise if we ask them without providing peace, stability and friendly environment, they can look for other options. In uk, i think its 50%, and they r thinking to reduce it to bring in more investment.

    so i m of the view to provide them friendly environment and then gradually increase it.

  • @abdulhameed

    In any economy, small businesses are the key for growth. An owner of small business is not millionaire. Encouragement should only be given to them.

    Anyone who has been making millions or will make millions on the backs of poor and middle class by paying them low wages does not need government help. Those people need to help the government in lowering the number of people below the poverty line.

  • @sipahi

    Agree! But first we need to create an environment so that they don't move out even after a big increase, so it should be a gradual process to increase for billionaires and support more and more small businesses.

  • @abdulhameed

    Believe me, these tycoons have so much power that they have spoiled all gradual changes, which were against their interests for last 64 years.

    Only a revolutionary change needs to be done, whether it is impacts the owner of Beacon House or major stock holders on Engro or other conglomerates, if they don't like it - too bad. Also, these tycoons can't take money out of the country.

  • @sipahi

    I'm not economist, so dont know if they will take their businesses to other countries or not bcoz of a sudden massive increase, but I think a gradual change lasts longer. BTW wht are current rates in pak & france?

    U pretend not to b a member of any party, but u only mentioned the ppl from pti, have u joined PMLN now nd can't name mian sb?

  • @abdulhameed

    I do not pretend to be anyone other than what I am, which makes me happy and feel good.

    I as an independent Pakistani, with no association with any political parties, would like all parties to become stronger and healthier. Stronger and healthier political parties will be good for Pakistan.

    I raised questions to you in relation to PTI, since based on your posts you look like a PTI supporter.

  • @spahi

    And wht r current rates bro?

  • @abdulhameed

    I didn't think that you sell yourself.

    Sorry to have exchanged my thoughts with you.
