Autumn Charities!

Autumn Charities!

Nature has given the autumn season prosperity and abundance. Apart from the stunning views of the trees with their yellowing leaves, as if they were painted with gold that falls gently on the wet ground, they have become the most popular motifs of the most famous painters of the globe, but also Albanians. Farmers harvest the crops with which they fill the barns. The vinedressers harvest the ripe grapes. Fans of boiling brandy, rush to provide the necessary quantities to produce the miraculous liquid that makes you happy. For the abundance it brings, this is the most preferred season, leaving the place to winter with snow and torrential rains. But nature is the irreplaceable host, the one that has lined up for millennia and is not the fruit of written desires or laws. It is the product of the evolution of life from its birth, the object of which has become Darwin's study. In this sense, autumn is the season that fills us with fruit and good material that we all enjoy. She is truly charitable and generous. For this in the daily dictionary it is said that autumn fills hands and houses. In a sense it is surprising compared to the other seasons of the year. In the face of autumn, as if to compete with it, many times cyclically put politicians with bombastic proposals. They want to compete in the prosperous season and look like it to copy its charity and abundance. And they become unrestrained without the slightest rest or serious judgment. Inspired by what autumn offers as measured by it to become charitable through promises and legal initiatives for unlimited salary increases and price reductions to the point of insanity. What if nature has self-regulated for millennia, these are our politicians, want to imitate its abundance through initiatives and proposals to create the illusion of the compassionate fathers of citizens in need. They seem to come with their hands full to forgive their happiness and well-being. From the podiums of the parties are proposed salary increases up to unaffordable limits of the Albanian economy, pensions, economic assistance for families in need and those with many children. And the refrain begins, reciting on party podiums by orators and propagandists who are mostly known as market economy specialists, but who really seek to trade with the needs of citizens who rightly claim more welfare, more good materials with as little money spent. And in the race came those who have written market economy books that have quoted the supply-demand ratio that have tired us of capitalism and its iron laws. Those who claim to have overthrown the centralized economy and now want to imitate it. From morning to evening, they pretend to be in pain when in reality they just fill the screens and tables of opinion leaders, spinning words and enticing the people with some balloons that the first wind blows as soon as they come out of the offices of economics professors, those who tomorrow they claim to lead us through the difficult paths and labyrinths of the market economy. Some of them even refer to Marx who made analyzes of money and commodity, value and surplus value, reproduction in economics and in-depth studies on capital ?! Yes, these are serious topics that only they know how to comment on and give us lessons on how, when, how much you can spend and money, which are sometimes missing and sometimes added to the channels of accounts as there are iron laws. Salary increase for teachers and doctors, nurses, police officers, clerks. Increase for retirees. For everyone, just growth. But we are never told where all these millions will be found to withstand the galloping growth, without any basis as if the money were produced on trees, or were they maple leaves ?! Of course, our opponents are released by hand. Everyone is put in the race. Flowering, is in the first place. Professors of economics and literary authorities are coming after him. Who to propose the highest indicators for wage increases and the largest reduction of prices. Finally, the Democratic Party is doing populism, undertaking legal initiatives in the Parliament of Albania with the VAT of the so-called basket products. The lady herself, Jorida Tabaku, described as the most prominent representative of economic thought, the star of PD figures, explained to us where the legal initiative aims to reduce VAT from twenty to six percent. It is known that VAT is an additional element on the price and most countries have it either at this level or higher. It depends on the stages of development of the economy of different countries. In our country, the VAT rate or value added tax is twenty percent. Of course, such an increase in prices increases the cost and expenses of the family even more to provide the products of daily use, which are necessary for all families, like those who are wealthy and have a high standard of living and higher incomes even those who barely make ends meet. Yes, the reduction or reduction of VAT up to almost four times in the conditions when the state is simply a regulator of the economy that could not legally set the prices of consumer goods from bread, pasta, rice, oil, soap, to the other necessary items that are necessary for every family are not placed by order by anyone. Prices are set by the market. So after the 1990s all products, starting with bread which had a controlled price as it was a product produced by the state in state factories, increased twenty times. Other products of daily use also suffered this fate. They were not imposed by orders or by laws or repressive state measures. And at this time at the head was the party of Basha and Tabak despite that they were still waiting their turn to join this party. Prices were set according to the supply-demand ratio. Of course the cost of living increased. But it could not have happened otherwise as the system with which we had agreed and started building is capitalism. One cannot claim to live in capitalism and demand that the laws of communism be enforced. The market economy has its own laws, which can not be changed according to the wishes and goals, whether in the interest of citizens or the propaganda of parties that want to look like compassionate guardians of citizens. Ms. Tabaku has submitted the initiative to reduce VAT to the Albanian Parliament. With a lot of pomp. So it requires that the laws of the market economy change the power of cardboard. In reality, for MP Tabaku, who represents the party that protects the right and recognizes the market economy, it is clear that the demand contradicts the laws of the economy where we live. Such an initiative is essentially populist as it ignores the supply-demand ratio and the laws of capitalism. If all liabilities go to zero, then where will the income be found to meet wage and investment liabilities? That Albanians do not live only to eat basket products, they are looking to develop the economy, to have more beautiful cities, with modern infrastructure, to improve the education system, to have higher quality auditoriums, to have good structures paid from police and military to justice and administration. If duties, taxes, fees, excises are reduced and zeroed, such as VAT then where is the income? It is abuse when researchers say we should take it from the oligarchs and those who steal from us. Although it seems like a socially based demand, as if they are mourning families, exactly these products require total reimbursement as no one can sell below cost and the state does not have the mechanism of production and supply of citizens with products produced by the state. Then where will Ms. Tabaku find all this money to satisfy both the citizens for cheap products and the businesses that treat and buy or use local products to reimburse them because no one enters the market from needle sellers to them of sugar, bread not to gain. Therefore, the request for a reduction of VAT drastically and immediately is in reality a propaganda initiative as it is practically unfeasible. I'm sure if Tabaku were in government and did the job of finance minister she would ask for today, not a reduction but an increase in VAT. She would not dare to ask for its reduction as the alleged Prime Minister Lulzim Basha himself would remove her with a ceremony as inappropriate to run the ministry of money. As an oppositionist, Tabaku, as well as the PD itself, is in its own right as there is no one over its shoulder. It is not required to increase revenues or invest as these are the duty of the government and belong to it. Yes PD as a party that claims to represent capitalism and the interests of the right has nothing to do with propaganda for lower incomes and wage increases let alone VAT zeroing, as the DP tries to do with legal initiatives in the Albanian Parliament. If this were to be done without compromising other indicators of the economy, without touching the laws of the market economy it would be a miracle. Just as it is served to us by the initiative of the opposition, it is just a maneuver to lure Albanian citizens to be told.- I fight for your vital interests! But in reality this request is just pure propaganda and a game that will continue as the initiators lose nothing. Their basket does not need any refund. They have them all and in abundance. Promises first! it is simply a maneuver to lure Albanian citizens to be told.- I fight for your vital interests! But in reality this request is just pure propaganda and a game that will continue as the initiators lose nothing. Their basket does not need any refund. They have them all and in abundance. Promises first! it is simply a maneuver to lure Albanian citizens to be told.- I fight for your vital interests! But in reality this request is just pure propaganda and a game that will continue as the initiators lose nothing. Their basket does not need any refund. They have them all and in abundance.
