To create more jobs, there should be some incentive to government. I am sure if there was something that government got out of it, they would go for it!
To get the state involved, we need to set up a global fund from the people for the state. This fund could take a nomainal fee from all working people, for just one month, and set up businesses from that money, or, send it to the country that supplied the most jobs in that time?
But, if the people were taxed more, say, one percent more, then how would that affect, say, my country south africa?
Let's say the average income in south africa is two thousand rand a month. That by about twenty million people. That comes to, at one percent, meaning 800,000,000 would be raised by this sector alone by raising the taxation by one percent! What could this do for the country, even if it is a once off tax? Well, it costs about a million rand to build a factory, and lets say another square million for the land and machines. That means two million could subsidise the construction of 300,000,000 factories or business blocks in the country. This will lead to, at about ten percent say about, 300,000,000 factories all supplying jobs of two thousand rand a month, at fifty people a factory or business block, more than 40,000,000,000 or fourty billion rands gdp growth or whatever - more coming in a month for the state. So, there is something in it for the fat cats too.
Of course, job creation is not part of the priorities of the elite. This is why they should set up a body for one month, let's say in two months time, to create one billion jobs. We do not have one billion people, so, we should plan for half a percent, coming to five hundred million people, but that is still way too much! Let's say we charge a quarter a percent on this new tax, creating two hundred million jobs? Well, we only have fifty million people, and half of them have jobs, so we need thirty million jobs. This means that we can charge only a tenth of a percent of the total income, and come away with more than enough factories to sell or whatever, and they will sell! Then there is the chore of selling the factories and business blocks, making, say, double your money back, meaning the fund could make the state, for setting it up, billions of rands.
Then there is the total cost for employing thirty million people, coming to roughly, say, 90,000,000 rand, or ninety million rand. They could afford that in their sleep! Why is nothing being done, and why not set up a fund for this one month? They will make money, they will create jobs, and they will make inital capital gains aswell.
To set up the fund, they need one account, and a once off tax for all citizens of a tenth of a percent. Then they need to redirect that to build infrastructure, sell it, and viola, problem solved.
