Residents who buy food or goods from hawkers operating outside the designated locations, give money to beggars, newspaper sellers or solicit for sex on the street could spend 60 days in jail or be fined up to 1,800 euro tells Arie Budhiman, a spokesman for the city.

Totally useless and cosmetical plan. The beggars will maybe turn to criminal activities if they are unable to collect money.
The goverment should takle the root of the problems.


For a technocratic Indonesia with foreign investors but not foreign owned Indonesian companies

Emoticon: Yes! You hit the nail on the head dirgantara. Being poor in Jakarta means that you will constantly be bullied by the local authorities.

What the government (local and national) should do is use the poor as a workforce that can solve major problems in the country. The hoover dam (1930) was such a project in the US. Later President Roosevelt presented the new deal policy, which included all sorts of projects such as The Civilian Conservation Corps, which sent young unemployed people to rural areas to plant trees against erosion. (Kalimantan could use a project like that).

Why not solve the floods in Jakarta this way. Or improve the infrastructure (see also this topic)?
