Revolution … !!! A word that may sound spooky and very basic .But for the benefit of the nation, I think these words are quite appropriate use in the title and theme of this paper, though more evocative, kicked and heard by our government today.
And on the governance of the fuel subsidy and the price of fuel here, we feel as a nation, indeed this country seems to have not found anymore economists and government experts who intelligently handle the country’s current economic realities that are so sunk with the policies that are not economical and silly not produce results that benefit the state and this nation.
Here I apologize to all elements of the nation, instead of smartass or smart ass, because I am not an expert or economics degree, but only as a layman at lower levels, but I am as ordinary people to feel and practice the Indonesian economic life that is currently managed by the government , apparently did not have a mission and fission that apply economic principles that actually, the “Finding magnitude and seek profits by spending as little as his” .. ie saving, saving … and saving …! and yes .. soriiii government …? beneficial not mean personal and group benefit, but benefits all elements of the nation and the state.
I as a nation, let me elaborate a little opinion here, chaotic governance of the fuel subsidy and fuel prices as well as the Indonesian economy at this time, which is not efficient and effective for the progress of the state and nation Indonesia. Actually too many oddities and irregularities applied this country, the economic policies that do not benefit the state and the nation itself, but here I try to focus on the story of the Indonesian economy is currently dealing with the issue of government PILPRES 2014 winner of “Jokowi-JK” will Indonesia plans to increase fuel haraga. And here through this paper I try to aspire to my personal opinion, how the governance of fuel subsidy and fuel prices are appropriate and ideal for the advancement and good of the nation and the State of Indonesia as a whole, which I try to shout loudly below …!
Hi ..! The leader of my country …! Please just Mr. Sir my father to raise fuel prices, with the proviso would apply my leader Sir cross-subsidy system, which normalize or restore fuel prices to a reasonable standard, the standard Indonesian or International (non subidi) on all private car / motorcycle / industrial / marine transport – air, but on the contrary, the government should lower the Rp.2000 (new subsidy) on public transport (buses, trains, taxis, public transportation, goods transportation services, commercial vehicle, expedition, and others), which interaksikan a reduction in public transport fares the land, the government set up to the local government, and inshaAllah will impact on the price of goods – services and affordable staples of the people, and there will be increased use of mass public transportation, mass transit because Indonesia is currently no longer on public transport (buses, trains, taxis, public transportation, goods transportation services, commercial vehicle, expedition and others), but it has shifted to the use of private cars and motorcycles, which are not effective for the use of roads, safety / discipline motorists, traffic congestion, the chaos of the city, as well as a massive waste of fuel nationwide, which resulted in no Guarantee that public transport, due to the current cost of an expensive, and indicated the helplessness of millions of people’s public transport entrepreneurs, as well as millions of driver / driver who complained, even though they have drenched in sweat sweat (traditional workers) that should most obligatory in priority certainty sufficient income and decent, they are also the main basis of the economy of movement under / path, because the certainty of its income, will impact on the certainty of increased consumption the results of the production of clothing / food of the people, which will benefit merchants, farmers, fishermen, etc..
From this group, its income must be increased by this regulation, because they can determine the stability of the national economy. If the certainty of their income together with millions of employees / officers who established the country, will be created a safe certainty for millions of industrial workers avoid layoffs, because the (current) consuming of all the results of industrial production in the country that encourage macroeconomic.
The system can be applied to government subsidies, namely by issuing subsidized fuel card (similar shopping card / credit card with a debit modeled BCA), is provided to all owners of public transport is conditional, and beradministrasi complete, and the tool sensor system (checking a PIN number ) given to retail outlets throughout Indonesia. Card and the system was in the product by means of state-owned banks, which cooperated with the government, as well as the cashier to pay any bills from gas stations, with data on the number and value of the rupiah liter subsidy, which has been distributed to public transport. While banks charge again to the government (not the Pertamina), depending on his cooperation.
The subsidy on conveyance, must be rationed maximum / month according to usage average number of liters / day, based on the type / classification of public transport. Cards are only able to be automatically activated every 1st of course, until they run a maximum quota / month, so do not be misused, and the users are wasteful and exhausted maximum quota / month, have to wait for the 1st of the next, as well as in the invite to buy a non-subsidized, and so on.
About this subsidy, why we so wish? because, although this is only an assumption berbandingan seen in the field, namely: if there is one public transport, there are 3 private cars and 15 motorcycles, while nationally based on population 250juta, there are an estimated 2-3juta public transport, 6-8juta private cars and motorcycles 30 to 45juta, if all of these operations, it is very enormity of this country waste.
And this is the result of multiplying the average fuel consumption per day of estimates and assumptions are:
1 (minimal) 2 million public transport, meaning an average of 2 million x 20 liters x 6500 = 260 billion / day
2 (minimal) 6 million private cars, meaning 6 million x average of 10 liters x 6500 = 390 billion / day
3 (minimal) to 30 million spd motor means 30 million x average of 2 liters x 6500 = 390 billion / day.
As for the number of kesuluruhannya reached 1.04 trillion / day, which means that this is a minimum expenditure of fuel this country every day, which just does not evaporate again.
I think this is probably the best alternative for the people of Indonesia’s economy, and the Government please raise / lower the fuel at any time based flukstuasi price / International Fuel market, as long as the price of fuel transport public transport is always stable and sustained (static), because once it’s helpful nature public and national interests that apply all segments of society, the transportation costs and the price of goods and services are cheap and stable, and will not make a market / volatile people, it is also very profitable even the government does not interfere berjalanya budget is being realized, and we believe that this policy will bring results Hopefully compensation and the strategic and economic value for the Economy Indonesia nation.
And if we imagine, if 40% decline in the frequency of consumption of 30 million motorcycles, which means there is an average 12juta x 2liter x 6,500 = 156 billion, and 30% of the 6 million private cars which means there is an average 1,8juta x 10liter x 6500 = 117 billion. This is an indirect form of compensation, namely: 156 billion + 117 billion = 273 billion / day, which saves the state finances and the people, and the money will be spinning on the micro economy of the people. Compare if this is multiplied within 1 year (355hari), namely; 273 billion x 355 days = 96 915 billion (96 trillion more) / year, this is the number of states penghemetan indirectly year, Walllahualam …!
The government may raise the sales tax / use, for all types of motor vehicles, approximately 20% – 30%, in addition to compensation for public transport subsidy policies, because 30 million motorcycles increased average tax 500 / day, which is 30 million x 500 = 15 billion / day, and an average increase Rp1000 / day for 6 million + 2 million private cars to public transport, namely; 8 million x 1000 = 8 billion, which means the number of all; 15 billion + 8 billion = 23 billion / day of consumption tax increases were realized in the vehicle registration renewal / year, means the amount of compensation is immediate; 23 billion / day, and the annual results of the 355 x 23 billion = 8,165 billion (8 trillion more).
There is no reason for people to reject this policy, because this is for the sake of balance / justice and economic improvement of all walks of life, because apart from the prices of goods are cheap, also available transport facilities of top class menengas (taxi), to the lower classes (public transportation, bus, etc.) are also cheap.
And not only that compensation is more important, but it is the movement of people in the real economy (real), because if fuel cheap public transport, the transportation costs will be lowered, and the price of food, goods / services and others-others must go cheap and down, the impact to the nominal decrease in the average expenditure of the people, which generates value and retained earnings / day / month, the effect of increasing the purchasing power of national masarakyat.
Here, we also hope, that the government (central bank) to limit the distribution of state money wise (except private) in the consumer credit business, the products that use the fuel, especially automotive and motorcycle, otherwise the government prioritizing the improvement of productive business loan, because the power buy people not measured / assessed on the behavior and best-selling automotive products in utangkan (credit) to the people, for the people’s purchasing power is not equal to the power of people in debt, “the government stop pursuing low taxes (quantity) of the large number of motor vehicles, as well as policies run raise the sales tax / consumption (quality) on all types of vehicles “.
As an alternative of declining sales / marketing of automotive products in the country, the government must play a role in transferring the production of marketing the domestic automotive industry (although all foreign brands), with the purpose of export out of the country, and in the government that it should help to lower export duty / tax export (which does not violate international trade rules), in order to be competitive selling prices, because the state already profited from the exchange, and the industry has provided jobs to the people. If only every industry products export Indonesia, the Customs exit / export taxes low, we believe will be able to compete abroad, because the cost / labor Indonesia, still cheap compared to outside the country, what else if after the new regulation. “the point is do not let people burst wasted fuel that will drain the people and state spending, and restore the function of the national public transport people into mass transit, and not Memasalkan motorcycles / private cars into public transport is not efficient and effective”.
So I created this article, may be useful for the country and nation … .Wassalam., And greetings Indonesia …!
