Politicians are "chopped the head"

It raises the feeling that politicians are "chopped the head" - they think they will have to depend on the Latvian economy needed foreign loans and the entrepreneurs should not do much "flounder" in his column, the magazine "Capital" February edition of the room indicate the chief editor, journalist Maris Zanders.

He emphasizes that the community has always known the quantity of people who are not satisfied with the ongoing - no matter what Party to power. In turn, the notional middle and entrepreneurs love palamāt government, but most are too pragmatic and busy with their lives to Christ in depression.

"Bad news is that the confused and tired in recent months, joined by more and more entrepreneurs and so-so-prosperous people. And here blamed not only the operators' inability to adapt to drastically different economic situation in Latvia and the world, but mostly, however, the structure of power in treatment, 'says the journalist.

As an example, he invoked the notion of many minutes' this is a political decision. "

"It was as already understood what it is about, but most of these" political decision "makers, it seems poorly aware of the fact that they affect not only the ratings of political parties and civil service, but directly and realistically - the economy. It can not be that the economy is iedragājoši decisions, disregarding opposition by the statement that "it is necessary." Politicians risk their popularity, but traders - with their belongings, "emphasizes the Zanders.

"Capital" editor-in-chief stresses - may not be the way that politicians are actually chantage business, she said: other things, better than we already are not, therefore, will have a pieciest.

"If the entrepreneur as cynical attempts to tell that anything does not make sense, because the opposition is qualitatively the same" svak "if the power calls to the" better known than the unknown evil ", the businessman, of course, does not mest rock Saeima window, but are frozen in their activities, "indicates a journalist.

In his view, was just as cynical politicians call themselves entrepreneurs to the government by speculating with the Prime Minister of non-business community and is known as a technocratic government. But each has its own field of work, and businesses do not deal with political processes.

"If the perception of politicians and taxpayers hire managers, then I am hard to imagine a company, as a profound" soap "savārījis management on shareholder accusations atcērt: first, netraucējiet, secondly, if that - come to form themselves in our izstrēbt!" Highlights "Capital" editor-in-chief .

"It raises the feeling that politicians are" chopped the head "- they have the idea that they will depend on the Latvian economy needed foreign loans and the business may not go far flounder. It said, softball is in our hands, without this money, you also nogrimsiet. It is not even worth to be angry, and insinuate that neba ministers will be those producing the necessary money for the repayment of loan. Jēdzīgāk time should remind politicians intensely that, yes, the economy "heating up" the required money, of course, is necessary, however, is not it, that business without the money will be dead and the dead. "

As pointed out by Zanders, creating sensible taxes and other bureaucratic regulatory environment, operators can help no less. However, it is not, moreover, it is not only a much-discussed value-added tax rate rises. Unlike pledged not heard that the State Revenue Service should become less severe or recovery naskāks the repayment of overpaid tax. Abnormal state and local government purchases have remained.

"Bad to the fact that the conceit of copper connecting the confusion. Traģikomiskā politically well-round, even quite common to engage the operators started to complain that "the question to deal with both their promises, however, remains unchanged. Not because that power would suddenly become ethical or bailīgāka, but because it does not understand what is happening. What happens to the finances, budget, etc.. In other words, the assumption, coupled with uncertainty, what is going on, what to do, is one of draņķīgākajām combinations that can be imagined, "emphasizes the" Capital "editor-in-chief.
