Budgets shape people, relationships and lives
This budget fails the integrity test on two fronts. Firstly it does not quantify nor measure what we own and possess at the start and end of the budget period. Perhaps the preparers of the budget do not themselves know these quantities or perhaps the preparers do not wish for us to know. Either way, how the presentation measures our past budgets and performance is a key asset in us knowing what belongs to us and how these planned activities of 2013 change these values at the end of the budget, and captures elements of what remains of past budgets, of incomplete visions, of Vision 2020 and the Planning Minister’s offerings. Budgets shape our institutions, our communities and our very lives.
