Ultimate in Cost Recovery!

This is one country where you would be strongly advised not to evade taxes – pay up promptly or face the likely possibility of a death sentence. Yes, their tax revenue officers bloody mean business – pssst, don’t tell our Min of Fin.

Additionally the country practices global management standards in cost recovery and cost efficiency.

They used to shoot the condemned man in the head and then charged his family for the cost of the bullet, which, I vaguely remember from an article, was around 67 cents. That’s the ultimate in cost recovery. I wonder how they did it when the poor bloke didn’t have a family or friend to pay up?

Now, they are into cost efficiency – read this. If you are a Jew, don’t – it may evoke some nasty images.
