South africa is nearly a third world country. I bet i can better the state of affairs here with minimal work, as i just did in my job creation thread with america, by simply tapping into welfare, and maybe some other sources. Who needs a military if you listen to your own people today? What good is education without jobs - you would rather not know how to write and have a job, yes?
Okay so we have 700 000 000 000 for the total budget. Let's say we were to scrap welfare, or just give it in grants to the disabled or something, and then see where we stand?Quote by: etu.org.za
How do you get this right? One quarter of the people in south africa are unable to work?Quote by: etu.org.za
Anyway, if we take ten percent of the seven hundred billion, we are left with one hundred billion, allowing for lee way. If there are fifty million people in south africa, and they need two thousand rand a month to live on, and 13 000 000 people need this, that means they need 30 000 000 000, or thirty billion. That leaves us with fourty billion to play with to create jobs and get people off the damn welfare! over a year that climbs to 300 billion though, so somewhere the stats are wrong!
If you, from scratch, were to build factories for the people, how much could you build with one hundred billion rand? If it costs you one million to build a factory or farm or whatever, then ten thousand factories and farms, each employing a hundred people, comes to 10 million people employed. The rate of unemployment is about twenty million in south africa, so this over two years could alleviate the problem completely, allowing for more taxation and a bigger gdp.
I am sure it is the same in the rest of the third world. Cut welfare and place that money into jobs creation is what i say.
