Island Musings

Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it

A cash economy

leave a comment »

Over the years, and due to the onerous tax structure, the cash economy has grown by surprising amounts. Otherwise honest and honourable people don’t blink an eye at evading taxes by paying cash for goods and services. Our overlords have not understood the law of diminishing returns. As envelopes of cash are passed the phrase “I feel like a Quebec politician” has been heard. Usually said with guilty chuckle (thus, with an admission of an illegal act).  

With the recent revelation in The Globe and Mail, how long will it be before Quebec politician is replaced by Prince Edward Island Liberal? Do the Sheeple care? Will the Sheeple have the grace to be embarrassed? As one of my friends said, “why do we let them get away with it?”.

And yet we do. There will be cynical annoyed comments. Then we will move on. Our overlords know this.

I know I will want one but having to charge daily is definitely a deal breaker for me. The Pebble will stay.
