Erna smashes the piggy bank. Credibility runs out

One of the most talked about the points in Granavolden platform is all about the government's ability to lead the expenses that a so-called 90-post in the budget. Briefly explained it means the government can use the money from its oil wealth, apart from the fiscal, to cover unforeseen expenses.

A current example is a new frigate to replace the wrecked ship KNM Helge Ingstad. Rather than to cover the costs within the budget scope, the government otherwise relate to, the hidden sum "below the line." The navy gets new ships, and Erna Solberg won't have to prioritize within the regular budget.

There is a dirty budsjettriks which harvests a highly deserved criticism from both the opposition and fagøkonomer. The fiscal rule exists because there are almost infinite good purpose for politicians to spend money on. But we use too much we will both smash the piggy bank at the expense of future generations, as well as the risk of frustrating the balance of the economy as a whole.

If the state suddenly sends 15 billion, the price for the new government district, into the economy on top of the investments that are recorded above the line, the real consequences even though they recognized out of the ordinary. The country gets less money on sparekontoen, and the government run the risk of breaking the fiscal rule.

instead of get solid, well-founded objections in the meeting, went prime minister Solberg right in the throats of the critics. In an interview with NTB defended her practice to say that "we can let be to build new regjeringskvartal and say that Anders Behring Breivik won - the four buildings he took out, standing like that, as a dead landscape and a monument to the acts of terrorism."

This newspaper understand that it can be challenging to come up with a well-founded explanation of why the government will have to prioritise what they spend our money on. But Tomorrow the play is both unworthy and fordummende. The terrorist win if we criticize the Right for irresponsible spending and budgeting.

the Prime minister has in the aftermath, slipping 22.July card back in your pocket, but doesn't seem to yield much in the actual question about whether or not this is a boundary we want to cross in the management of oil wealth. In The q & a yesterday she told that the proposal is adopted detailed, but closed on no way the door that her government will change the rules of the game for oljepengebruken.

With the thought that the government for many years has spent more money than it should of its oil wealth, as well as considering overtrekke state gullkort in the time to come, we fear for the financial accountability of the government apparatus. The wise management of the community's money has created a rich and happy nation, and must not disappear as a virtue in politics.
