How many taxpayers in South Africa carry 84% of the burden?
http://www.moneyweb.co.za/moneyweb-tax/less-taxpayers-than-sars-reports-solidarity
Tshwane should consider these numbers when making decisions. The taxpayers vote with their feet and then there will be even less funds for a bust city?

Worth noting in business planning!
SA, with its large fiscal and current account deficits, is considered by global analysts to be one of the most vulnerable economies to the capital outflows and currency weakness that could result from this realignment.
A second risk, Ms Lagarde warned, was the strengthening dollar. Emerging market economies are especially vulnerable since many have increased borrowing in dollars in recent years.
A further risk raised by Ms Lagarde was that the eurozone and Japan could be "trapped in a twilight zone" of low growth and low inflation for a long period.

What are the prospects then for reaching our growth targets? Has this had anything to do with the empty SONA last night? I suspect very much so...

A Pres Jacob Zuma contrarian view in 2007.
The outcome was a lot worse?
Self-enrichment and incompetence with low standards are now well entrenched?
An example:  Just call education in Western Cape and call them in Gauteng. The difference is self-evident to any caller of both areas!

A nice approach to life and science!  Thanks Ramon!
 
Life is more certainly much more interesting when you have uncertainty and doubt. Richard Feynman is the antithesis of the radical atheists like Richard Dawkins. I'll follow Feynman over Dawkins any day of the week.

This explanation of taxes (theft) fits with Obama care. They take money from successful people, who could have developed business hiring more people. Now less and less jobs are created since Goverments can be wasteful with vey low output.

Electricity fed into the grid will not let Municipalities lose anything. You pay a tariff on units fed back into the grid to use the infrastructure and thus the income remains constant?
The only issue is around the metering and IT systems to handle this?
Please help.

Let us learn and contribute to others for a great ride in 2015 on spaceship earth!
I chose two links to make us think about our choices for the ride in 2015!

1. Epcot on spaceship earth video.

2. David Deutsch has pointed out that the picture of Earth as a friendly "spaceship" habitat is difficult to defend even in metaphorical sense. The Earth environment is harsh and survival is constant struggle for life, including whole species extinction. Humans wouldn't be able to live in most of the areas where they are living now without knowledge necessary to build life-support systems such as houses, heating, water supply etc

Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and wealthy ride!

Story
Tagline
My life's joy is working with people ensuring they build fulfilling careers.
Introduction

I deliver a career and business building systems that let you build careers and business safely, securely with certainty. Working for Hewlett Packard for nine years I built two successful and profitable teams. Building these teams, I learned about successful business and people development. The training I received from Hewlett Packard was worth millions. I left Hewlett Packard and used the knowledge gained there to build many successful businesses. We focused on developing people as core to the sustainable growth of our business. From 1996 -2002 and still running, I built one of the most successful incubators in South Africa using the same valuable platform. In this incubator, we packaged the accumulated career and business methodologies. We now apply these methodologies in career growth, business growth and community economic capacity building.
