Te das cuen?

Carod Rovira caera mejor o pero, pero mira, a mi me gusta la gente que se rebota cuando le tocan las pelotas y el otro dia en el programa "Tengo una pregunta para usted" se los intentaron tocar.

Y la respuesta al chavalin chuleta y a la petarda de la permanente es fantastica. Al pan pan.



Dices Schwarzenegger y no puedes decir "Yusep Lluis"? venga hombre... :-)

Cual es el origen de la riqueza de un pais? Es algo que nos preguntamos todos ya que cuando esa pregunta tenga una respuesta definida e inequivoca habremos encontrado la formula que nos permitira a todos prosperar, solo habra que aplicarla.

El problema es que muchas veces la respuesta que se ha dado y aplicado solo a causado aun mas miseria. Solo hay que observar aquellos paises en los que el estado se ha metido mas y mas en la economia de un pais y en el bolsillo de los ciudadanos.

Por otro lado solo hay que ver la evolucion de aquellos paises, con pocos recursos y tradicionalmente pobres, que han tomado la decision de dar mas libertad a sus ciudadanos para disponer de su dinero como buenamente gusten.

Por ejemplo ISLANDIA. El gran heroe islandes fue el promer ministro Oddsson

When Milton Friedman visited Iceland in the nineteen-eighties he was asked what solution he had to Iceland’s economic problems. Friedman gave a simple answer: “The solution is freedom”. The freedom of the individual and the freedom of the nation are the foundation of all well-being –spiritual and material alike. The motive behind attacking the Treasury deficit was not only its bad economic consequences. An equally important consideration was that a persistent deficit is a sure-fire recipe for higher taxes in the future, and higher taxes erode the freedom of the individual. Necessary as taxes may be, we must not forget that by their very nature they restrict our freedom.

In 1995, Treasury debt in Iceland was equivalent to more than 50% of GDP. Next year it is forecast to be down to 15% of GDP. The Icelandic Treasury is in a solid position and Iceland’s international credit rating has never been better This success has been achieved not in spite of extensive tax cuts but, to a great degree, because of them.. In the early nineteen-nineties, corporate income tax was 50%. The Government cut it first to 30% and later to 18%, and Treasury revenues and economic growth actually increased as a result. Personal income tax has already been lowered and during the current government’s term of office it will be reduced by a further four percentage points. An income tax surcharge on the highest incomes will also be removed, and inheritance tax has been reduced and harmonised at a level which will never exceed 5%.

In addition, it is planned to reduce value-added tax on food, which will benefit the lowest income groups in particular. I am convinced that these tax cuts will greatly strengthen the Icelandic economy well into the future. And not just the economy. The whole of society flourishes and becomes more diverse when each and every one of us keeps more of what we earn and can dispose of it as we please.

De un pais lleno de gente miserable que tenia que emigrar para no morirse de hambre, a uno de los paises mas ricos de Europa, iman para miles de inmigrantes.

Unas cuantas historias con moraleja :-)

A priest offered a lift to a Nun. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said,”Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest removed his hand. But,changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest apologized “Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.” Arriving at the convent, the nun went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, “Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.”

Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
