We should make sure that poor people don't have to pay tax. At the moment we pay means-tested benefits to the poor, while also charging them VAT. This is bad because it is bureaucratic and creates perverse incentives. Abolishing VAT would be funded by:
- CO2 Tax
- Ending the drugs prohibition
- Legalizing prostitution.
- The EU unilaterally removing all protectionist policies.
- Paying less in state benefits because the cost of living would be lower.
