  •  Tax money, not labor (4+ / 0-)

    The first step in truning this around is to start taxing money, that is, a financial transaction tax. Use the proceeds to reduce taxes on labor and help people who can't make a living wage. This would swing the pendulum back to the demand side economy we used to have and go a long way to restoring power to the people.

    •  I like this idea. Please think about it some more (0+ / 0-)

      and then write up something on it.
