He is officially Croatia’s most intelligent person and was recently named the 3rd smartest person in the world, now Croat maths professor Mislav Predavec has given his thoughts on how to get Croatia out of the current economic crisis.
Predavec (44), who was ranked 3rd on the list of the most intelligent people in the world after scoring 192 in a IQ test, says that the government needs to lower taxes to stimulate spending, not push Croatia into the European Union, restrict wealth and open up jobs, reports 24sata.
“Unemployment in Croatia could be solved by increasing domestic production. It would create jobs, but would also have a positive impact on the economic recovery. And even without increasing production unemployment can be reduced by having a fairer distribution of salaries. I believe that one should not get most of the money, while others barely survive,” says Predavec, adding that he believes that domestic and foreign investors are avoiding to invest in Croatian production.
“When laws or incentive plans stimulate production, then new jobs will open up,” said Predavec, who says there are reasons for and against Croatia joining the EU.
“When we enter the EU, there will be better jobs available for the skilled labour force, the Union’s products will be competitive on the world market. The reasons against joining the EU are globalisation, which will further contribute to the concentration of power to a small circle of people who already have too much power,” concluded Predavec.
