News: June 2004 Archives

The e-government Work Programme of the European Commission (EC) may wish to look at Value Mapping, if it can help identify a sustainable new source of taxation. As European population stagnates, its asset wealth grows - relatively untaxed.
British consultant in geo-data policy Chris Corbin attended a recent EC workshop and reported:
"As the European Society has very small growth in population and hence the work force size is static or reducing due to the ageing effect then there is a need to redeploy people from the public sector into the new areas that are expected to fuel the Information Society and Knowledge Economy. Where will the taxes come from to sustain such investment especially in an environment where taxes are being slowly moved from direct to indirect? Research was needed in this area."
