TAX YOUR IMAGINATION! is a fast-paced and groundbreaking analysis of the root cause of economic volatility and inequality. It challenges longstanding economic theories using a simple mathematical model. Most importantly, it offers a painless and systemic alternative.
TAX YOUR IMAGINATION! is a blueprint for a new world economy and an enduring peace. While the goal is grandiose, the solution is simple, using local government and existing laws as a wedge for reform. It is uniquely post-partisan, exposing the strengths and weakness of all political factions, from monarchy to terrorism and the seemingly intractable positions of leftwing and rightwing politics. Mathematically, all current political positions are the same, and will generate inflation, debt, instability and concentration of wealth. They each fail to address how money is handled. “Buy low-sell high” has enduring consequences that can only be solved with a comprehensive “buy low-sell low” framework. Individuals, unions, governments, businesses and non-profits need to share a common understanding and strategy. Our problems are primarily an accounting methodology issue.
TAX YOUR IMAGINATION! covers the birth of modern finance, which began a brief three-hundred years ago. Fiat paper currency has allowed debt and inflation to be infinite, and computers have given us the ability to process absurd calculations, but under the surface, it is still a feudal system. The National Debt problem can only grow, and the related crises repeat more deeply and more frequently. That is the nature of a geometric progression. Returning to a gold standard is not a solution. That is where the problem originated.
Man has been struggling with the underlying math of trade for thousands of years. There is no answer to ‘How many eggs is a chicken worth?’ How then do we devise a system of fair trade? TAX YOUR IMAGINATION! provides the beginning of a workable framework. It reveals the economic problem and suggests a local strategy. The choice and consequences are stark: we can have perpetual war and inequality, or we can have equality and a long-term renaissance. The difference is as simple as writing down different numbers.
The modern world can have zero debt, zero inflation, full employment, a high standard of living, with stable, satisfying and sustainable relationships with each other, across borders, between generations and with the Earth. A little courage, some empathy, and better math more cleverly applied, are all that is required to improve our world.TAX YOUR IMAGINATION!
