ontario pension plan

http://www.ottawasun.com/2014/05/22/former-pm-martin-rips-hudaks-proposed-public-service-cuts

first off ontario pension plan translate in a tax, payroll tax…http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/05/01/ontario-budget-reveals-plan-for-first-of-its-kind-provincial-pension-that-could-be-integrated-into-cpp/

and second is the big problem of having the liberal near money; which by looking back to history to understand the consequences that means that the money will be spend, not wisely…and will follow another tax or more borrowing to cover the spending…

with the borrowings the problem is Ontario credit rating has already been downgraded http://www.thespec.com/news-story/2241349-moody-s-downgrades-ontario-s-credit-rating/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontario_government_debt and there are talks will be downgraded  again (http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2011/12/15/ontario-credit-downgrade-moodys_n_1152375.html), which means higher cost of borrowing given the higher risk…

adding the fact the interest rates are at low level now and don’t know what will happen when they will be increased, sorry another tax I guess…

summing up, looks like having another Lib gov in Ontario is the surest thing to financial ruin…

question is - that was not a necessary investment or they just got used to ask for Federal money ?…

whiners in Wynne’s gov whining after federal money:

and not that Ontario Libs have a tracking record of spending money wisely…

Ontario Liberals….

if history teaches us anything is that what Liberals propose and do is not sustainable, viable and ends up by collapsing - see Eastern Europe, Iron Curtain until 1989…

the basic idea being if no wealth is produced, there is nothing to be distributed, other than borrowed money (hence the deficit)…

cloud computing…

one of the advantages of cloud computing might be business development

a company might decide to take steps to expand its business without worrying too much about IT infrastructure on first phases of expansion…

ans the new tablet laptops like HP ENVY x2 or even Microsoft Surface might add some help in the initial stages of expansion…

P.S. wondering if RIM will go at it again and decide over a tablet laptop (“lablet” ?…)…might not be bad idea since the name of the game is enterprise…
