In my opinion progressive income taxes is not the best idea for Romania, both from logical point of view and hystorical experience,as well. I've seen this applied during the former socialist (currently PSD) government and it had very bad impact on education: people were not interested anymore to invest in their education as long as they were to be paid apparently more but to actually retain netto income not much more compared to people with less education. So it was not worth the extra effort. On top of that,such policy could be an extension of the communist era thinking in this matter, when people with higher education were not valued and rewarded by society accordingly. Even for promotion in a more important position,a higher education was an obstacle.

            From my point of view higher education should be taxable at both state and private distinction between the two is that: public education to private denote besides diploma, a contract signed in triplicate (remains one student-applicant, second left university and the third remains the company's relationship with the university that takes responsibility for the student-applicant EMPLOYEE concerned with a decent salary). Public education is chargeable has a responsibility to provide education to the highest standards, such as Harvard, Cambridge, and professional practice required the applicant, so that to the end of education, young to be an expert in his you chosen field and paid on measure.

Impozitarea este metoda care asigura resursele financiare ale statului, pentru ca acesta,la randul sau, sa poata oferi cetatenilor servicii. Impozitul este un pret platit pentru ceea ce cumperi de la stat: servicii de sanatate, educatie, administratie samd.In privinta taxei progresive si a impactului sau asupra capitalului uman, parerile sunt impartite. Nu cred ca in Romania aceasta taxa progresiva poate asigura o investitie mai mare asupra capitalului uman. Solidaritatea sociala din acest punct nu s-ar concretiza, cel putin nu la nivelul Romaniei pentru ca ar exista o plafonare a salariatilor, acestia preferand sa stea sa munceasca pe salarii mici, decat sa incerce maximizarea venitului. Tot timpul se recurge la modul comporativ de analiza si sunt aduse ca exemplu statele ocidentale, fara a se lua in calcul istoricul acestora din punct de vedere economic. Impozitarea progresiva poate fi considerata ca fiind echitabila, de catre contribuabilii cu venituri reduse. Consider ca eficienta sistemului fiscal nu este data doar de schimbarea modului in care se realizeaza impozitarea, ci si de continuitatea unui proces. Cu cat se intervine mai mult, iar aspectul impozitarii in Romania reprezinta o problema politica, cu atat sistemul devi ne destabilizat. Functionalitatea este data si de continuitatea unui proces.

Eu tind sa cred ca impozitarea progresiva va conduce la cresterea veniturilor guvernamentale insa nu se poate asigura ca vor fi investiti mai multi bani in dezvoltarea capitalul uman.
