Once again, the news is filled with the economist dream idea of setting a tax on living in your own apartment (because you don't pay rent, so you get an advantage, which could be taxable income).
Well, the idea is absurd. Of course, from a theoretical, economist standpoint it makes sense. So do communism and fascism, but still, they don't work either. After all, how much could we be taxed on the theoretical income we gain when we drink tap water on meals, and not not cognac? Think how much the state loses in taxes!
I hope this tax idea will not be approved, whatever government there is, but my question is, what else is happening in the country that needs covering up? What is it that is not wanted in the news, if this bi-annual provocation needs to be brought up?
