About Me:

Lets improve the lot of the middle class taxpayer instead of everyone else.

One of the biggest challenges in South Africa (aside from all the obvious ones) is encouraging us to save.

There are many articles about the merits of socialist policy, the merits of capitalist policy and the reasons why one ideology is much better than another.

This is a very interesting topic because it covers the idea that "tax" just like anything else is a competitive environment.

We have a R1 trillion annual budget but only generate R750 billion in taxes. So where does the extra cash come from ?

The idea of land distribution for many is an interesting one predicated on the idea that someone obtained land unfairly and therefore should be forced to return that land.

I have many say things like "the mine worker at the bottom of the mine works hard and is paid peanuts compared with the management of the company. It isn't fair !".

I love this topic because everyone has an opinion, and mostly it doesn't matter what you (or anyone else) say because this is a debate which can't be won - at least not yet.

To those who believe there is a genocide, maybe you are right - without real police statistics it will always be difficult to prove (and disprove anything).

I have been following the Anglo Platinum retrenchment story with great interest largely from the side lines.

It is interesting that whenever one has a discussion with communists/socialist the countries that they hold up as examples of where South Africa should be going are China, India and Brazil.

I must admit, I am puzzled by the e-tolls scenario. Ultimately e-tolls are just another tax and a relatively small one at that.
