Profitable firms pay State's bills

While I agree with Fred Nietzy about the country not being a business (Letters, August 16), one must realise that to have a caring society, taxes have to be raised, and tax yields depend on a healthy economy.

Without taxes there will be no services like health education and so on.

But taxes collected from the public sector are not enough: the balance must be right.
