Today, I wanted to blog about Robert Pattinson. OMG HE’S SOOOO CUTE!
But shite.. i got to do my economics homework.
Seriously… I do regret taking economics at O level. Come on, at my age, who will care about the government, the stock market, the foreign currencies, demand and supply, or elasticity? As long I have enough money, get to see my friends every day, and with tons of pictures of R.P. in my wallet. I”M HAPPPPPY!
However much I hate the subject, I do like my economics tutor. Ok Ok.. I have to thank my dad for this. He finds that economics is an important subject because it is a relevant topic when I grown up (I don’t understand this, but I think I will understand when I grow up!). So, he find a economics tutor for me so that I can understand the concepts better, plus score well for my exams. So I have gone for economics tuition for like…almost 6 months. And I can tell you… I never miss any economics tuition class. But I miss almost 99999% of my school economics class! Okkkk.. I didn’t really skip school. But I just fall asleep when my school teacher talk. Yawnnn. Why I like my econs tutor?
First, He’s a guy. Please don’t think so far. I like him because he can relate to me well. Again, please don’t have funny ideas please. I like him because he can talk to me like a friend, and teach me econs like a good buddy. I don’t know his age, but he seems to be a few more years older than me. Maybe this is why we can connect better. (My school econs teacher is almost 3 times my age…hahah..) Maybe that’s why when he talks, he is like telling old grandfather stories. But when my this econs tutor teach, it is like a mentoring session. so awesssssome!
If you know how much I hate economics, you will know that I don’t even listen to lessons in class, and don’t even read about government taxes (which come out in the mid-term this year). I don’t even care how the government use the money (as long as I have money can already). But this economics tutor teach me this topic like how a business is run. Because my father got a business, then this tutor can use my father business as an example to explain to me how the government is run. Now let me explain it to you.
When the government collect tax, it is like income to the government. This is like income to a business. The business sells things, and collect money from others. However, the government don’t need to sell anything, but they still collect money, because the government will use the money to maintain public goods. Public goods are like roads, transport, safety (our policeman!), cleanliness. ALL THESE THINGS need to pay man! Just that now I don’t pay tax, so I don’t feel the pain. but i think my dad does. haha.
Ya, so that is why government need to collect tax. The tax is the income collected. Then the government will use the money to spend on building the country. When there is a disaster (CHOY, Singapore don’t have), the government will have to spend money to rebuild the country. Other government does this. The tax is also used for our government officials’ salary. HEY this one, i heard our prime minister earns the most in the world? Like that means we pay alot of tax to him? Hmm.. eye opener.
Anyway, enough of my rant. I’m gonna catch a movie later. If you are like me, who hate economics class, then I can recommend you my teacher from The Economics Lab: Economics Tuition Singapore – theeconomicslab.com. If you want to listen to more about my guy tutor, I can share with you more!
