On Union Budget 2016-17 : Continuing Bonanza for the Super-rich and Burden on the Poor

Union Budget presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley does not address any concern relating to the economic growth nor takes any step to ameliorate the deteriorating conditions of the people. It does not address the questions of peasant distress, industrial stagnation or the rising economic burden on the common people.

The Budget exercise of Indian Govt. has lost much of its importance due to year round increase in taxes and levies as also jugglery of figures. Incomes are inflated to balance the figures and expenditures are announced to hear plaudits from apologist commentators. However the money is not spent and thus people are fooled without any exertion on the part of the Govt. Govt. makes big announcements to hide continuing slowdown of economic growth, the announcements which are never implemented. Schemes are renamed (after Sangh icons), regrouped under different head to show increased allocation and tricks of the kind are galore in Jaitley’s Budget. Appropriate noises are made of care for the peasants and common person but all the benefits accrue to less than 0.1 percent of the super rich. Homilies are paid to the poor with loud mouth but the fine print discloses the real bonanza for the super rich.… Read More

Irish People Reject Austerity Policies

(New Democracy News Service)

Anti-austerity mood of the people of European countries manifested itself once again in Ireland where parliamentary elections witnessed resounding defeat of the ruling coalition of Fine Gael and Labour Party.

However gains made by Fianna Fail, Sinn Fein and different other groups have unmistakably demonstrated mood of the people against cut in govt. expenditure. Verdict in Ireland conforms to the trend being witnessed in different European countries which experienced severe recession and had to implement austerity measures.

Ireland has been hailed as a success story by the apologists of the present system for having come out of recession. Over last two years, Ireland has recorded highest growth rate among European countries. However, this growth has come about by increasing the burden on the working people and conditions of the people except in middle class areas of the capital Dublin have deteriorated. Despite trumpeting of Ireland’s supposed success, people burdened rejected the policies which increased burden over them. Worst sufferer was junior ruling coalition partner Labour Party which people punished for implementation of austerity policies despite their support base being biggest sufferer of the same. Biggest gain was made by Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail which had campaigned against these policies.… Read More
