what people think about it

Raising taxes is just plain dumb and, in the end, probably more destructive than useful. It may well start with the wealthy, but it still will not be enough to cover our ballooning debt, so will insidiously creep to taxing the the middle class more. The emergent middle class are not that solidly established and will find their newly acquired status rather more precarious. What needs to be addressed is corruption, waste, theft and general mismanagement. Here, there is no political will the whatsoever on the part of the government, and still too many voters who do not have the political nous to hold the government to account, or envisage a future with another party at the helm. While the billions lost to malfeasance and incompetence, which includes a bloated parliament and civil service, will not solve every economic problem we face, it will go a long way to doing so. The #feesmustfall group are, I think, totally missing the point. That money would be better spent on upgrading primary and secondary education. Tertiary students who qualify should be assisted as much as possible, but we also need the old colleges back to train artisans. Like it or not, we cannot have a glut of graduates unable to find work, but we do need properly qualified plumbers, bricklayers, electricians, welders, etc. These artisans, in addition, if they are competent enough, could start their own businesses and, if the government undertook major public works programmes, would find themselves more employable. Even if the ANC is voted out in the next elections, it might take decades to return to economic health owing to the utterly parlous state we find ourselves in. Truly a disgraceful situation.

mr delivery fourways I totally disagree. Any increased tax collections will be completely offset by the impact of existing and accelerating non compliance by tax payers. We all know that no matter how much tax revenue accrues to the ANC government a major portion will be stolen. There needs to be a change of leadership and an elimination of wastage to get SA back on a even footing. There needs to be a massive cut in government in terms of people just for starters. You could halve the number of politicians and there would be immediate positive financial benefit

In spite of the generous salaries they get paid, cutting back on the politicians won't make a very large difference, since they are relatively few in number. On the other hand, trimming in the area of the public service seems a much more viable proposition. Where the middle-management levels there are paid lower (but still quite generous) salaries, they make up for it by sheer weight of numbers. It is sometimes claimed that the lower levels (eg working police, teaching and nursing staff) are both over-worked and under-paid.

Spoken like a true tax collector. There is one thing you missed. The tax paying public don't want to solve this problem. They're sick of death of paying exorbitant taxes to fund corruption. Government expenditure must be cut back massively. This is the only way it will work.

Hiking taxes has never really worked except for a short term bump in revenue that is quickly ironed out. Look at US income over the last ten decades throughout variable tax rates and the revenue ratio is very similar (after accounting for currency changes and population size fluctuations). Hiking taxes reduces GDP growth and increases unemployment, and thus revenue soon balances out. The only way out is to dramatically reduce government spending and in SA this means a huge reduction in government staffing and an across-the-board cut in government salaries. This is political suicide, especially with the looming ANC conference and crucial national elections in 2 years. Thus it won't happen. The final solution is to embrace a highly innovative new economic programme that cuts away dead wood (breaking up giant state conglomerates), simplifying and streamlining business red-tape and labour law, and giving a huge boost to small and medium business initiatives through direct investment and loan initiatives. This will cost a lot and might need funding from the BRICS partners and outside investors, will be politically sensitive (cannot be hobbled by exotic BEE limitations and social engineering experiments) and will only show positive effects after about 3 years. But it is a more viable long term plan for any government that doesn't wish to preside over a general economic collapse after 2020 and a Venezuela/Zimbabwe remix (which in SA will be far bloodier and more violent than in those states).

Instead of committing to low growth for the next decade we should ditch socialism. Growth in the economy is the answer but growth will only occur in a thoroughly transformed free-market without government dabbling in the economy.

Reasoned like a real financial ignoramus. The solution to the problem is for the government to spend much less. Cut paid politicians by 50% and cut all civil service and politicians salaries by 5% and we balance the budget in an investor friendly manner. New taxes and more taxes is not the solution.

‘The current tax base is adequate for South Africa’s needs’ - a questionable statement in my view. And seriously, what do you think will become of the theoretical billions raised through extra taxation? I’ll tell you: squandered, stolen, anything but used to meaningfully help the country.

Bahwhaha!! Ridiculous....he's going to write a terms of reference that will keep him out of jail for the next 40 years and by that time he will be dead and buried. The terms of reference will read something like this: "I, JG Zuma hereby orders a full judicial inquiry into state capture, according to the following terms of reference: 1) All alleged cases of state capture must be investigated going back 365 years, starting when Jan van Riebeeck landed in the Cape of Good Hope. 2) The alleged cases MUST be investigated in chronological date sequence, starting with the oldest alleged case. 3) The judicial commission may not proceed with the investigation of a next case until the inquiry into the previous case has been completed and judgment handed down. 4) According to my knowledge there are at least 1.5 million cases of alleged state capture that took place between 1652 and 2004 that MUST be investigated before any of the frivolous 783 ALLEGED cases of corruption against me may be investigated. 5) In case the commission of inquiry works dilligently and DO get to investigating any of the alleged case against me, whilst I am still alive, I reserve my prerogative as life long honorary president of the Banana Dictatorial Republic of SA to make new representations to the serving DPP at the NPA at such time..... 6) Catch me if you can......hehehehe!!!!"

When Madonsela recommended that let a judge of the Constitutional Court appoint the commission, she was not oblivious of the Presidential powers to appoint a commission, it's just that the president is implicated in the report. Now, it's only in SA where a person implicated in a crime investigate themselves. Logically, Thuli was right.
