The way many of us view taxation is like; We used to make (X) from crude oil rents, now we are making (Y), so we need to increase non-oil tax by (X) – (Y) to make up for the shortfall.It is not that simple, taxation is also about a “social contract”.
- From sarahmarb:
#PonziModi Modi Govt. charges one of the highest taxes & cess on Petrol, Diesel & LPG in the world when the price of crude oil is the lowest in last 20 years. A Govt. designed to loot the poor & fill the coffers of the rich. Robin Hood in Reverse. 🤷♀️
- From WCCanadian:
@TheoFleury14 I’ll listen to it when world oil & gas demand ceases to exist. Crude oil is the #1 traded commodity in the world and we’re sitting on more than we need. Why shouldn’t we exploit it and prosper from it? We have to stop being ashamed of our natural resources.
