Welcome to the Economic Study Association. Here we plan to discuss and promote policies that lead to a sustainable, fair and prosperous society.
One topic is contained in the book Public Revenue without Taxation, written by the founder of the Economic Study Association Ronald Burgess and published in 1993. The book offers some clear direction to policy makers of today grappling with the mistakes of the past.
“Taxation is the primal cause of both inflation and unemployment. Regardless of this, the freely elected governments of the contemporary trading economies – with the acquiescence of their electorates – persist in raising the major part, if not all, of their revenues by means of taxation. The immediate cause of such action by government is ignorance of any acceptable alternative method of raising sufficient public revenue.”
