Welfare
What is poor in world terms?

Can we continue with low rates of growth for the next fifty years? If we do then our most vulnerable citizens will lag further and further behind the poverty level of first world countries. Low growth affects the poor worst.

Our politicians continually raise their pay packets, have given themselves a gold-plated retirement scheme and recently gained control over their own unlimited expense accounts. Not only this but they have hugely increased their numbers while the population is growing by 1% or less and they are continually enlarging the bureaucracy.

Should we do nothing or act in the only way we can in a democracy. We must make our voice heard and our vote count.

Supporting The Foundation for Economic Growth is one way to show we care about tomorrow.
