This is a good example of it :
Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) says that Windfall taxes have the capacity to distort the country’s economy and suffocate mining companies.
KCM Board Member Jacob Mwanza says the taxes, if implemented, can only collect increased government revenue for a short period of time. Dr Mwanza says this revenue can distort the economy because it is money which is not budgeted for. He told a media briefing in Lusaka today that current mining taxes are adequate.
He added that the windfall taxes are not widely used in major copper producing countries such as Chile and Australia.
The intellectual poverty of the pro-low mining tax lobby has reached a new low. One does not have to be an economist to see why our Dr Mwanza is only a "Doctor of Philosophy" on paper. Are these these the people Musokotwane was referring to that are in touch with "modern economics"? This is a man who was at one point "Governor of BOZ" and Vice Chancellor of University of Zambia. Are you still wondering why we are poor with such "talent"?
