Our never ending stories

 

DRAFT 2.0

10 augustus 2022

 

Er zijn een aantal onderwerpen die steeds terugkomen. Bijvoorbeeld, deze dagen, het slavernijverleden en de vermeende gevolgen daarvan, de excuses en de daarbij behorende herstelbetaling. Maar dat was niet wat mij triggerde. Ineens zijn de onderwerpen belastinghervormingen en bureaucratie en red tape waar aan de orde. Voor ik nader op die twee in ga, wil ik nog nog een paar van die onderwerpen opsommen, zonder naar volledigheid te streven: de schoonmaak van het eiland, grote drugsvangsten, kwaliteit van het onderwijs en de daaraan gerelateerde brain-drain –het wegblijven van onze jonge mensen die waren gaan studeren in Nederland. De kwaliteit van ons wegden; de gaten in het wegdek en het ontbreken aan strepen. Niveau van de politiek en de media. Ect.

Het belastingsysteem en red tape overlappen elkaar. Ons belastingstelsel is erg bureaucratisch. Ik heb de discussie over red tape al meegemaakt vanaf eind jaren tachtig, toen minister Chucho Smith een commissie instelde die als devies meekreeg: from red tape to red carpet. In het verlengde daarvan kwam er een one-stop-window voor investeerders. Het was een duur bureau waar FIAC, Foreign Investment Agency of Curaçao op het uithangbord prijkte. Na een aantal jaren van dure snoepreisjes werd het wegbezuinigd. Tegenwoordig heb je CINEX en de afgelopen kabinetten kwamen allemaal maal commissies om de red tape te bestrijden. Nu was het weer tijd voor een nieuw rapport en publiceert de Centrale Bank een nieuwe studie over bureaucratie. Het schijnt x maanden te duren voordat men een bedrijf kan openen. Het irononische is dat nog maar een paar dagen terug Bloomberg ons eiland als nummer één plaatste op de lijst van tropische eilanden voor digitale nomaden en een economische bureau gevestigd in Amesterdam, Aruba en Curaçao prezen voor het investeringsklimaat.

Zeker al vanaf 2013 stelde ik dat wij ons belastingstelsel kinderlijk eenvoudig moesten maken (Goede M. , 2013). Maar al voor die tijd zijn er vele wijzigen gebracht aan het systeem, allemaal met de bedoeling het systeem te vereenvoudigen. Het resultaat is iedere keer, paradoxaal genoeg, een nog complexer systeem. Nu hoor ik ex-premier Rhuggenaath en de huidige minister van Financiën en anderen over het onderwerp. Vereenvoudiging zou de compliance verhogen. Zou door meer indirecte belastingen zorgen dat meer mensen bijdragen aan de staatskas. Het is vriendelijker voor de belastingbetaler en het apparaat om de belastingen te innen kost minder.

Helaas kan ik u bijna verzekeren dat zowel over de red tape als het belastingstelsel er niets zal veranderen. Het is omdat soort verhalen die niet ophouden dat men het wil proberen te forceren met een Coho. Misschien nog een tijdje wat roepen om het in context (Den Konteksto) te plaatsen en om het in perspectief (Perspektiva) te zien, maar of wij tot conclusies (Konklushon) komen en er een punt (Punto Final) achter zullen zetten is zeer maar dan ook zeer twijfelachtig. Zelfs aan novela’s komt een eind. Ook er begint dan de volgende weer een nieuwe, maar zo is ook onze werkelijkheid. Ik begrijp meteen als Clifton zegt dat Curaçao rondjes rijdt op de rotonde, wij kiezen nooit een afslag.

 

Miguel Goede
