O Rico = O Mau e o Vilão

Flat, n'A Arte da Fuga

Quem se opõe politicamente à flat tax argumenta que é injusta. Com um sistema de flat tax, os ricos pagam mais que os pobres, na proporção dos seus rendimentos, mas os seus detractores insistem que é preciso fazer com que "os ricos" paguem proporcionalmente mais.

Aproveito para mostrar o aparente programa do Platforma Obywatelska que, dentro do panorama político português, seria muito bem-vindo.

  • Flat tax rates: 15% personal income tax (PIT), corporate income tax (CIT), and % VAT.
  • Tertiary education reform, with equal rights for private and public universities.
  • More cash spending should be done by local government, less by central government.
  • Privatization and demonopolization.
  • Direct elections of mayors and governors.
  • Private health care.
  • Majoritarian parliamentary elections.
  • Labor law reform.
  • Narrowing privileges of trade unions.
  • Teaching economy in all schools.
  • Giving the National Bank of Poland full control over monetary policy.
  • Allowing private landlording.
  • Lowering the number of MPs in the Sejm from 460 to 230, and depriving them of parliamentary immunity from prosecution.
O Insurgente refere também que os Tories estão a considerar a medida.
