Can you guess who this is?
The first, and most obvious of those alternative answers is one that I have long suggested. This is to suggest that collecting only a part of the £120 billion tax gap is a way to do this. Such solutions do not, admittedly, happen overnight but I have not a shadow of a doubt this option is available. Money that should be used in accordance with the will of government is not being so at present: the aim of this policy is to reverse that. At present some of that money lost will be saved – and so not be put to any productive use
Savings are not put to productive use. My word. We can therefore demolish the entire financial system can’t we? Since we don’t actually need anyone to put the savings of the nation to productive use any more?
This is interesting too:
The fact is, almost any investment can make 1% rate of return to cover the cost of government borrowing,
Really? Any investment can make 1%? So no investment project has ever, before financing costs, lost money then? Concorde? Pets.com?
