Gee- I thought we already had such a thing. It's called MONEY. You work hard and earn some and some lazy bloke who sits around all day and has never bothered to develop any skills gets him slf labelled disabled so he can take your money, buy beer and sit around doing nothing and complaining about how he doesn't have any money...
Euros... (For those who does not know what he means lol)
I'll pass for now i'm waiting on nano robots in a jar, you open it up sprinkle a few over the board you're working on and then they wireless bridge and automatically sort out the I2C, SPI, UART, JTAG, etc...
and when you're done turn board upside down, power down the nano bots, gently shake onto work area and brush back into jar, any contaminants, dust or whatever will get their molecules re-arranged and turned into a nice smelling fragrance for when you next open the jar..
Yes, but major international companies (I won't name names, but let's say some of them make a lot of computers) do a lot of business in Australia but pay peanuts in company tax because for some reason they aren't really here, or their head office is on some island somewhere or some other damn explanation.
Your idea of charging wealthy people more would simply result in the wealthy people somehow being "not wealthy" when it came time to pay for things. It's exactly what they do when they fill in their tax returns.
Plus you haven't explained what the incentive is to work hard. Say I am lazy, don't make much money, and get things cheaply. Or I could work hard, double my income, and then pay twice as much for things. What's the point?
You incentive is to buy and afford "luxury items" by working hard.... (as the price remains the same)
