Consult Economists To Resolve Economic Meltdown

"...reduction of government expenditure is a key to improve the economy:"

By Dr Gai Jany Gai*

Small is effective, manageable and beautiful. I am optimistic that the economic crisis can be solved if real and painful measures are taken by the committee headed by Professor Dr. Wani Iga the Vice President.

The committee should consult our economists who may contribute to solve the economic crisis through their vast experiences and sound opinions. In such situations, reduction of government expenditure is a key to improve the economy:

1. Reduction of state government size to the Governor, Deputy Governor and three ministers for economic, infrastructure and services.

2. The number of country and legislative members should also be reduced based on the size of the State.

3. No need for advisers and commissions even at national level with exception of the commissions for refugees, humanitarian, and human rights.

4. Accommodation of ministers, arm forces and government officials in hotels should be stopped immediately.

5. Also purchase of big luxury cars should be stopped.

6. Payment of services to all government institutions should be reduced and priority given to monthly salaries. If you deny me my salary and pay me services, I will use the services for my survival.

7. Monitoring and close supervision of non-oil revenue collection is vital. It is the responsibility of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning.

8. If some revenues are remitted to private accounts without the knowledge of the Ministry of Finance and the ministry is aware of the wrong practices and keeps silent about it, that is a big disaster.

I hope the committee will be blessed and succeed in this big and important task for the sake of the nation.
