We all know the system is not perfect. Can you recommend what CAN be done to improve it economically/politically/fiscally? What would you do if tomorrow you were suddenly Prime Minister?

Do other countries have a better economic system in your opinion?

Personally I can only applaud the recent changes.
Being taxed at 48.5% on my hard earned capital gains only to see the government waste money on $10,000 carpets didn't sit well with me. More of my money to spend the way I see fit can only be better. And as for the GST, I don't spend much except for rent, food and utilities - so I am a winner. With the cuts in income tax rates versus the increase in some items, it may be that I am no better or worse off - so be it. Surely there are alot of workers in a simialr position?

Anyway, enough politicking, - I'm going to sell my shares that I use to hold for fear of 48.5% tax, and maybe take a small holiday!
