    I am disappointed to see government corruption and manipulation of our taxes along with the continuing funnelling of these taxes into subsidizing and supporting a minority to hold the majority of us into ransom by way of high house and land prices. What is more unbelievable is the same people who are complaining now and in the near future will still vote for the same political parties that are responsible. Mass hysteria with a touch of Stockholm Syndrome.

    Aha – Stockholm Syndrome is evolving into a new law: Hudson’s Law as discussed on today’s Renegade Economists with Michael Hudson. Transcript coming soon.

    To think we are giving away $45bn in super concessions to the wealthiest in Oz, and over $200bn to land owners per annum, makes you wonder how far the people can be pushed. Hudson’s Law indeed.

    Hi Karl!
    Whilst I share in your democratic cynicism, I dare say there are enough political challenges to implementing this reform that no MP would be game enough to ignore the tax shift element to the argument. It’s our best chance of getting it implemented. There is so much money harnessed by monopoly powers that income, sales and company taxes can all be removed. Read the Total Resource Rents for more.
