It seems like value should be able to be created by producing a service or medium valuable enough to continue to be desired to be used. Same idea with any business entity. That’s why all businesses exist.
Cardano creates value, and is projected long term to do this. The scope of projects are vast. Taxes on things we consume I think makes more sense. Everyone consumes. This puts the incentive in the right place. Criminals and common people alike all pay their share based on their appetites. It’s simpler. Function of the IRS is simplified just like that and reduced.
This business model of solving a global inefficiency (such as these countries finding real use cases that won’t just stop) is a value. Most countries have this extant taxation model (that I think you are proposing - I may have Misunderstood) - isn’t that part of the problem?
Again, I may be missing something, but it seems like a difference in overall economic model. You shouldn’t be taxed “just because “, or just to “exist” this itself reduces motivation to work, or be part of the system.
It creates other problems. There might be a smarter way. The system shouldn’t be oppressive to its participants.
We live in a model where the taxation model doesn’t promote production. It penalizes it (I.e. the more you produce the more you are taxed - and at a higher rate - than the less productive). It creates unwillingness and indigence. It a bit sinister.
I would ask that you broaden your view of the problem and inspect if the existing system actually solved a problem more than created one (any government-most are insolvent-tax in a similar fashion). A solution shouldn’t “solve” the problem by consuming itself, which is another problem)
I think change, by people who have the clearest view of the problem, should be given a chance. And I think ‘looking ‘ at what people actually DO instead of just LISTENING to them and sticking to the same old way, would be a good first step. ( Observe what is actually happening in the real word, and not just listen to the PR machine)
The extant System (and it preceding philosophy) is broken. If it worked. We wouldn’t be here. It’s supposed to serve us.
This is my opinion and observation. Everyone is welcome to have their own point of view. I think what we are solving is bigger and includes this mechanism as well. Thank you for listening.
