Emergency Economies

Post by RWStanding »

Emergency Economy
If commerce is closed down then we do not have the same economy. We must have a minimalist survival economy. Everyone on basic income, Rational distribution of basic goods. Selected businesses put into hibernation, not paying wages, not paying dividends, not paying rent, not paying taxes, with the government funding security and maintenance to allow the business to be resurrected if still needed. Local authorities directly funded by government. The treasury or Bank of England ‘printing money’. In the long term our environment needs to be protected, with profligate industry reduced. Some airlines may need to be eliminated with only those airlines remaining that transport essential cargo, and minimal transport of people. An Altruist Democracy is one in which people are free only to do anything that is supportive of society and its environment – which is all one.
