A (very) Draft Economic Manifesto

Balanced budget combined with fiscal responsibility/sustainability and inter-income and inter-generational “fairness”

Tax and spend system should encourage good behvaiour and punish bad

Need economic and moral reasoning

Cut corporation tax to zero
Increase dividend tax and cap gains to income tax level.
Eliminate tax deductions for debt.
Raise minimum wage
Raise tax-free threshold
Require work for welfare

Reduce social security and medicare to a catastrophic-insurance plan

Phase in by age group, so oldest don’t have the carpet whisked away
