The Ukrainian Ministry of Finance, not without pride, reports that a regular US citizen has become its employee. Natalia Yaresko presented to colleagues her tax advisor, 75-year-old Arthur Laffer. Known Laffer that derived a formula expressing the pattern between tax rates and tax revenues. Laffer served as economics adviser in the Ronald Reagan administration.

Another person with an American passport in the government of Ukraine


From a post posted on website of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine:

In order to use the best international experience in implementing reforms and stimulating investment, economic growth and the creation of new jobs, the Ministry of Finance continues to attract well-known international experts to cooperate. In particular, former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of Slovakia Ivan Miklos, international economists and experts Chris Wales and Robert Conrad have already joined the team of the Ministry of Finance in the status of advisers to the Minister and Deputy Ministers. In September, renowned American economist Arthur Laffer joined the team of recognized international experts advising the Ministry of Finance.

Laffer studied at Yale University, he is a Ph.D. at Stanford University, a professor at the University of South Carolina and the University of Chicago. He is the author of the well-known theory of the dependence of government revenues on the average level of tax rates in the country (the “Laffer curve”). At one time, Mr. Laffer was the economic adviser to US President Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

In his position as advisor to the Minister of Finance, Laffer will provide the Minister of Finance with advice on the implementation of tax reform in Ukraine, which will create a transparent, efficient tax system that will stimulate investment, economic growth and job creation, improve the quality of public services for businesses, and will give a strong impetus to sustainable economic growth.

Mrs. Yaresko has not yet reported when steady growth is expected in Ukraine. But said the head of the Cabinet Yatsenyuk. According to him, in 2016, the Ukrainian economy will grow by 2%. If this is true, and if such growth will continue in subsequent years, Ukraine will need at least 15 years to reach the level of at least the beginning of 2014 ...

            How will an economist raise an economy, half of which is in the shadows?
            There is no need for an economist - here you need a mafia boss.
            Even if economists lay in piles in the Cabinet, nothing will change in this country.
            You can change tax rates as you like - but this is pointless if taxes are not paid at all.
            You can distribute the budget and make subsidies - but it makes no sense if half the money disappears nowhere.
            You may be a genius of the economy - but there is no economy in Ukraine.

            Ukrainians have a problem in imitation - stupid copying does not help, but they cannot copy creatively.
            It's like a "cargo cult" among the natives of the Pacific Islands. They, luring planes with humanitarian aid, built "airfields" with stuffed planes made of reeds, because they remembered that from "the same" airfields, during the Second World War, they were given edible nishtyaks. And this is in the 2s of the 60th century.
            Well, now century 21, now not fake airfields, but fake ministers, etc.

          Tamga - originally - brand, brand; a patrimonial property mark in some nomadic peoples, in particular among Mongolian herders. Tamga marked horses, camels and other livestock that were in the common ownership of the clan, or objects (weapons, ceramics, carpets, etc.) made by members of the clan. Subsequently, tamga became a sign of family and personal (private) property, corresponding to the emblem or seal. It is believed that descendants of a certain kind borrowed the tamga of their ancestors. The tines and tridents depicted on the tamgas and having a sacred meaning were used as a tribal sign, were widespread in the Khazar culture and are a characteristic feature of its sign system.

    Gentlemen and comrades. You in your dodging hatred begin to offend a well-deserved economist. The Laffer curve has been included in all textbooks for a long time and is known to ANY freshman studying the basics of economics. The man did a lot of good by curbing the indefatigable appetites of tax authorities around the world. I personally argued with our IFTS No. 14 in Moscow using its theoretical data.
    Well, regarding his participation in the Ukrainian economy, the forecast is very simple. He will run away, unable to withstand clashes with the 70% shadow economy and oligarchs who pay taxes as much as they see fit. The peculiarity of the Laffer curve is that it takes into account an absolutely law-abiding taxpayer, for example, Germany or the United States. Where the worst criminal offense is tax punishment.

    So the satirical poem A, K, Tolstoy asks here, a vivid illustration of what is happening ...

    "Listen guys,
    What will tell you grandfather.
    Our land is rich
    There is no order in it.

    2

    And this truth, kids
    For a thousand years
    Our ancestors dared:
    Order de, you see, no.

    3

    And they all became under the banner
    And they say: “How are we to be?
    Let's send to the Vikings:
    Let them come to reign.

    4

    After all, the Germans are too busy
    He knows the darkness and light
    Our earth is rich,
    There is only no order in it. ”

    5

    Messengers at a brisk pace
    Went there
    And they say to the Vikings:
    “Come, gentlemen!

    6

    We will send you gold
    What Kiev sweets;
    Our land is rich
    There is only no order in it. ”
    7

    The Varangians became terribly
    But they think: “Well here?
    An attempt is not a joke
    Come on, if they’re calling! ”

    8

    And so the three brothers came,
    Middle-aged Varangians,
    They look - the earth is rich,
    There is no order at all.

    9

    “Well, they think,“ a team!
    Here the devil will break his leg,
    Es ist ja eine Schande,
    Wir müssen wieder fort. "

    10

    But brother elder Rurik
    “Wait,” said the others, “
    Fortgeh'n wär 'ungebührlich,
    Vielleicht ist's nicht so schlimm.

    11

    Though a lousy team,
    Almost only trash;
    Wir bringen's schon zustande,
    Versuchen wir einmal »..."

    Fragment, the beginning of the poem ...

    For a long time it does not matter how many American passports. The main thing is that a structure has been created for this business and funding has been secured.

    Quote: Vladimirets
    But the head of the Cabinet, Yatsenyuk, said. According to him, in 2016 the Ukrainian economy will grow by 2%.

    Let Senya dream, and G. Laffer is just another economic beholder from the "dad" beyond the Outskirts. It seems that all the remaining territory of the Outskirts was divided among themselves by amer TNCs, so they send overseers, otherwise the descendants of the proto-ukrs will dig a new sea throughout the territory and a skiff for all plans to develop a new sales market and cheap labor on plantations - their own negros we got into the board and got out of hand! laughing laughing

    Ukrobandera soon in the government will not have their own. It is not in vain that parsley forces everyone to learn English without exception, as I understand it, in order to understand what the government is saying to them.
