Why do we still not feel economic growth in our wallets? What else could the cabinet do?

The essence of the problem becomes visible when we look at the CBS figures.

Below I have shown this graphically, with the source with which you can look yourself and make comparisons.

What we see here is that the Labour volume was in 2008 on 4488 (x1000), then shrank to 4264 in 2014, and in 2018 (forecast) opens to 4725.

The gap between the working volume in 2014 and 2018 is about 10.8% when we take 2014 as a starting point.Either, there is talk of almost 11% more employment in 2018 in proportion to 2014, when we look at non-financial companies.

In the same period we see a decrease of 203 to 181 in the financial sector (also about 10.8%), the government remains roughly the same (966 to 964), the category “households” increases from 336 to 389 (15.8%) And the number of self-employed persons increases from 1159 to 1249 (7.8%).

In short: On the overall market we see growth in the volume of work.
More work is being done, and so more is paid.

If we do this against economic growth[1 we see an increase from 102.3 to 112.0 at the end of 2017.This is a growth of 9.5%

If I correct to 2017 (this is the year I have for both labor volume and economic growth) we see an increase from 6927 to 7508, this is 8.3%.

In short: We see a sharp increase in labour volume, read employment, and this increase is linked to economic growth.
Although people who worked from 2014 or earlier did not advance, there are a lot of people who now have work and do not.
This has partly pushed the economic growth of the past year, but is also financed from economic growth.

The fundamental discussion we can pursue has more to do with the role of the Government as with what the government could have done differently.
Immediately the side note that the article is in the NRC of 2017 and they have not yet owned this data.I am envied by what the article would look today.

Capitalism is good at making prosperity, but in itself it is worthless in dividing that prosperity.

Just to clarify.

Capitalism is a very simple concept that is not good or bad in itself. It just means that people invest money to make more money.
The people who can invest most are the people who are relatively wealthy, so the people who benefit from capitalism are the people who are already wealthy.Rich people, or iig. The rich people who are clever will always use their resources to become richer, and wealth is always relative to people who are in comparison poor.
We live in a capitalist society, and at the moment we have little to no counterbalance on capitalism.Therefore, it can’t be that the economy is growing, but hardly anyone notices this, except the people who are already wealthy.

Capitalism needs a counterpart in order to be of added value to the general population.Whoever wants to see how capitalism looks without any counterbalance should look at the US medical sector. To date, that country almost exclusively believes in the right of the richest (or unbridled capitalism), and thus costs ‘ n infusion with a saline solution (read: Water with salt in a pouch) in the US about $300,-. This means more or less that everyone can literally fall dead, unless they can cough without difficulty, several times, other costs, $300,-.

Well, the US is an extreme example, but it is not unthinkable that the Netherlands also has that direction.Since the cabinet Balkenende-I, so the past 17 years, has the Netherlands ‘ n right-wing government. So that we as a country have been implementing legal policies for almost several decades, and it seems to me that this is the reason that most people do not notice anything of economic growth.

My answers are standard too long for comfortable reading, so I just want to finish this answer with ‘ n simple ‘ no crap, Sherlock ‘.When you as a country support right-wing governments for 17 years, even the entrepreneurs of SME’s are very little of economic growth. All the benefit of economic growth goes to international companies that pay no taxes, and only if you are lucky they want to buy your business, a la Amazon. Did you really think that you only voted on personal financial security contra social responsibility past elections? Well, at this then, welcome to the 21st century.

P.S. This is not an anti-capitalist argument, and not even ‘ n anti-VVD/Rutte argument.I sincerely believe that they don’t mean bad. Capitalism is not bad in itself, just as ambition in itself is not bad. Ambition is a fantastic thing in people. But just like someone who is ambitious above all, you don’t have to expect capitalism to respect your person or quality of life.

Because Trickle down economics is a myth.
Companies do not stop the money from good results in their employees.They pay off loans a little earlier, but above all they invest the weather in growth and acquisitions. Whether it is in the salaries and bonuses sit out of the top men. A growing economy is for the benefit of the employee/consumer for a small part.

I think this is due to a number of issues such as: 1. Government that went out of business to share better results with employees 2. Government has assumed that by higher salary employees (which is not done) more tax could be levied without the gem Dutchman feeling this.In practice It appears that the workers have not grown along and at the same time are confronted with extra taxes so worker is doubly caught! Not to mention all the costs of the energy transition that are largely deposited with the consumer instead of the business community.

Think it is clear why Rutte did not call business… Salary growth was the foundation of many government plans.

What the government could really do differently is to establish annual salary increases per sector.In addition, the Government must cease to serve the distribution channel by knowing a lot of levies on one side and subsidies that are supposedly distributed.

Lower the rents and draw the debit and credit interest alike.0.5% interest on your savings and 10% if your red state is unheard of.

Why is that a government task?Growth Zelluf.

The empire is becoming richer because the population is not opposed to it.

Personally, I think this is because we haven’t really been “ahead” for years.It is always a bit off and there, a cigar from its own box and pocket, vest pocket.

That a person who sits under a modal but does work.So the working poor. Only can come around if it is subsidised (rent subsidy, care subsidy, subsidized labor).

For example, because at the same time there are so many price increases that do not or hardly commit to be compensated.Think of municipal levies or those of water boards, these fall well beyond what is offset.

I do not believe that the cabinet wants to do anything else at this point, therefore, that it would like to consider something else.
