1. An economy whereby the 0.01% rips its citizens off, gets them into debt with taxation and land price, pillages natural resources and infrastructure, then totally kills off productive business activity every 18 years.
2. Georgism, which does none of these.
Why, then, do we choose Option 1?
Maybe it’s less boring having our earnings and leisure time stolen? Just the same, I’d still vote for Option 2, to retain more of my earnings and to have much more time for leisure.
But it seems I remain in a minority.
