The Multiplier Effect

The livestock farmer will spaff it all on new Valtras. ;) Whilst pretending he can't afford to pay £12.50 for straw. :troll:


Think I bought an International once that had a Multiplier gearbox.:unsure:

I think that was likely an amplifier gearbox. Torque Amplifier?

I think the real burning question is this...

If you give any farmer £1, how much will he spend on lime?

£1 of taxpayer money given to the livestock farmer is of greater economic benefit to UK agriculture as a whole, than £1 given to the arable farmer.
Discuss. Extra marks for showing any workings.
£1 given to anybody will “benefit” the economy in some way, except maybe to somebody who sticks it in a savings account.
I’ve said it before but I think the day is approaching when they just tip an 8 wheeler load of cash in the market square every month. It would at least save all the paperwork.
 
should it not be worded " of greater economic benefit to the uk as a whole " ?
Bit of tinkering with tax relief could do that, less tax relief on German (other country’s make them too) tractors, more tax relief on things like sheds and concrete which rely much more on a British workforce in manufacture and construction.

Would I be right in thinking you’re not looking fir opinions, teacher knows the answer and is seeing who can fugue it out.

Not at all. Reason for the thread:
We are told that one of the aims of ELMS is to 'increase productivity'. If we take it that 'productivity' is just a polite word for 'profitability', then where will the greatest impact be achieved ? Giving the £ to the livestock farmer, or to the arable farmer ?

They do. It's called Quantitative Easing.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy
