The population of Estonia should grow instead of decreasing, and the politicians should support this with all possible programmes and measures. It should be possible to live a decent life also outside the “golden circle” of Tallinn, but the population of counties is approaching the critical number that renders the developing of services is extremely difficult. This tendency can be counteracted by directing both capital and jobs outside Harjumaa, and also through tax differentiations. The tax system should be fairer, and investments into research and development should be greater.
