Have we had enough of fees and Taxes?

Why do we pay income tax? GST? HST? Bank fees?

When these taxes and charges were introduced we had immediate needs. World Wars were going on.

Now we pay because we have always paid…..WELL PEOPLE this is not a good enough answer for me.

How about you?

We must hold our elected officials accountable. We must pay attention to these dysfunctional ways organizations cipher money from us and have no measurements for success or failure. Everything that involves an institution asking for fees or taxes must have a quantitative performance metric attached. If the value is not being achieved we change it.

Think about what you have in your control today that you can introduce a quantifiable measurement. For 30 days see what happens with the performance of what you decide to measure.

What do you think?
