I don’t trust leaders, I trust those chronically unimpressed grey-haired professors with 3 PhDs in macro economics and 40 years of experience that get hired by leaders to deal with all the complex stuff, which takes years to do I kinda trust my leaders to not force me to declare profits after buying a cup of coffee.
The whole point that I was making - is that:
There’s no much sense in trying to imagine tomorrow’s life with today’s technology. Paying taxes for crypto today is a pain in the arse (when possible at all) just cuz the technology itself is virtually non-existent yet.
The point with economists was about the fact that world-economy was hard as heck to deal with before crypto too, so crypto did not actually make it that much harder (from strictly economic perspective), just shifted the responsibilities a bit. Everyone for some reason reckon the fact that people would manage their own money as something of profound significance, like never in the history of human kind there ever was a time when banks didn’t control everyone’s money. And all economists really reacting like: “What? People want to handle their own money again? Ok, then we gonna recalculate some indexes a bit.”
Most of problems with taxes come from: a) deficit of comfy technology that would track and calculate all your stuff for you; and b) lack of understanding for now on how private should a private really be, and how people declare their private txs, and socio-economic stuff like this.
Technology is coming. Internet of 2000 was nothing like internet of 1990, and the same in the next 10 years. Crypto of 2028 will be nothing like crypto of 2018. Great technology is on it’s way, but it’s taking YEARS of hard labour to produce all of the stuff that we are accustomed to. And so does the socio-economic stuff, or even more so )
