companies, and all other resource-intensive industries. We'll untax
their profits IF they agree to pay true costs for resources (which,
rightfully, really belong to all of us; Exxon didn't make the oil in
the ground, did it?), as well as pollution, land use and whatever else
they don't actually produce, but merely take from nature.
Geonomic idea would discourage the waste of resources, end land and
commodity speculation on the markets by taking away the "fuel" for it
in the form of taxes which would be returned to the community, free up
innovation by untaxing true productive operations, and vastly reduce
pollution by finally taxing these "externalities." It would also end
most poverty and wealth inequity by ending monopoly rights on income
from non-manmade resources via a Single Tax on these, while rewarding
true innovation and productivity by untaxing wages and capital. In Al
Gore's vernacular, "Tax what you burn, not what you earn."
