with 9 comments

BORUT PAHOR IZHODNA STRATEGIJA foto borutpeterlin.com_6103

Prime Minister Borut Pahor enters University Medical Centre Ljubljana and above him there is a sign no exit. Ljubljana, 29.3.2010.

Do you still remember my picture two months ago of Minister Mitja Gaspari, who is one of the motor of governmental “exit strategy” from recession? Reality does transcend imagination.

  1. When will you run for prime minister and apply your buddhist lifestyle into politics? You must a fair bit since you spend a lot of time photographing them no?

  2. next week I will photograph Dalejlama and try to convert him to free market believer. What do you say about that! Reality is transcending even your comments, čefur!
    Amazing!

  3. Believe me, he is aware of the free market and is freely utilizing it to his material benefit.

  4. Iztok! You’re my favorite commentator on this blog hands down…and you’re right about the DL…he even opened up a twitter account like our good comrade Borut. Iztok will you ever come back to Socialist Slovenia or will you stay in the USA? You’ve lived in both countries right ( I’ve seen photos of you in Straza ) why do you think Slovenes hate freedom so much? Your move.

  5. JC, I don’t think they hate freedom. I just don’t think they really understand the meaning of it. (Not saying that US is free, we have whole new/different set of binds.)

    There are some personal freedoms in Slovenia but there is also significant economical tyranny as well. Taxation is the highest in the world and services don’t justify it.

  6. Iztok, Slovenian expression to avoid taxes is “tax optimization” and everybody knows how to bypass that 55% tax law. We beat communism, we’ll beat capitalism too!

  7. Are you publically saying (on this blog) that the tax system of your country is being bypassed by yourself and most of its citizens? Question is: are you dumb enough to admit this on your blog or dumb enough to pay your taxes? That is a tough one…but you didn’t beat communism, you left socialism since you had most of the money of the republic. Luckily for you you endured the least of the wars in the Balkans…but is your personal hope to beat capitalism now? What would you prefer?

    Your faithful reader and fan. Cefur.

  8. All I’m saying is that there are legal ways to bypass that ridicules taxation and there are companies offering tax optimization for your company. As former Prime Minister J.Janša said, the richest people in Slovenia are not those with highest salaries.

    Capitalism as we know it can’t be the future isn’t. Even the fiercest believers (Iztok?) can see that laissez-faire economic philosophy wasn’t working at all and that however you turn it around constant economic growth can’t be feasible. I’m even more reluctant to discuss about the breaking of Yugoslavia. So judge me not, if I’ll not reply to Iztok’s truth about capitalism, that it’s inevitably coming.

  9. I’m not judging anyone here and tend to agree with you on that one. I suppose people who earn descent money at the expense of others prefer to keep their right at earning money and paying as little as they need to.There has to be a middle ground somewhere.
