People don't respect police, so when government would want to massively increase their salaries, people would protest against it. Fines go down is a good thing for sure, but it'll reduce amount of money going to local budgets, so people in government will protest against it (because they'll need to find money to replace those from reduced fines). Taxes go up: nobody likes it. Anti-bribery goes way up: when everyone's corrupt, nobody wants it.

It might work when someone like president or minister really wants to do that and have support. But it's more like mini-revolution. It's hard to go there evolutionary. But may be I'm wrong.




Hah I really love discussions like that, everyone is right to some certain point.

If there would be one size fits all solution, we’d had one of those.

Generally the quintessence is the big role of money. But you just can’t create money out of nothing. Money comes from actions, money causes actions. If the Cashflow is redirected, something else will suffer from it.

If it increases compliance then the effective revenue might actually go up.


>People don't respect police

Apply Peelian principles? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peelian_Principles)

(I've no idea how.)


> It's hard to go there evolutionary.

Yeah that seems like exactly the problem.
