Redução do deficit orçamental Janeiro 23, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 6:14 pm
Ontem ouvi o Ministro das Finanças na rádio a dar conta das contas do subsector Estado. Hoje na minha rotina pelos blogs favoritos vejo em A Minha Matilde & Ca. um resumo dos números apresentados. As receitas fiscais aumentaram mais de 2,1 mil milhões de euros em 2006, ou seja +7,2 % do que o ano passado e as receitas totais aumentaram 8,3%.

As despesas aumentaram 2,4% (só) e por isso o défice orçamental do subsector Estado desceu para 7,4 mil milhões de euros. Números que levam Teixeira dos Santos a afirmar que a consolidação orçamental está no bom caminho. Ainda bem digo eu!

O que é mais curioso é que conforme ontem ouvi na rádio, e relato de memória, o Ministro (aliás em jeito de correcção…) atribuiu este bom desempenho em primeiro lugar ao comportamento da despesa (pois só aumentou 2,4%!) e (só) em segundo lugar ao aumento das receitas.

Pois … como é fácil afinal gerir (coercivamente) com o dinheiro dos outros! E «o esforço tem de continuar…

Só que não se pense que as receitas fiscais podem aumentar todos os anos 7% quando a economia cresce menos de 1,5%… As despesas é que têm mesmo de diminuir.

Com o único jogo entre equipas da Liga a ser o Boavista-Nacional e com as equipas de escalão inferior a receberem em casa os seus adversários de escalão superior (a excepção foi o Bragança que se desloca a Figueira da Foz) a Taça pode continuar a oferecer algumas surpresas.

Edouard Manet was born on this day in 1832 in Paris (d. Apr, 30, 1883). «He was influenced by the old masters, particulary Velazquez and Goya, but Manet reasoned that ones art should reflect ideas and ideals of the present rather then the past. So disagreeing with Diderot’s theory that great art only reflected the costume of the past, Manet sought instead to follow the advice of Baudelaire…to depict a contemporary realism, to be “le peintre de la vie moderne.”»
