A basic income tax: Asking everyone within a society to pay 10% BIT and dividing this amount through its population = Basic Income For One
(In the Netherlands for example, this would sum up to a basic income for everyone of $350 a month, in South Africa $90 a month for everyone, etc.)
The idea I am proposing could be implemented everywhere, regardless of the size of the society it is implemented in.
The advantage of such a tax would be:
- Families with many children would get more support
- People that can't work would be safe
- The division of poor and rich would shrink and with it criminality
- Everyone would feel more as an equal part of society
If we would tax everyone in the world 10% Basic Income Tax and divide this amount through the world population, we would generate a basic income for every one on earth of $60 and that would be the end of extreme poverty!
