A Permanent Endowment For The United States, Karl Widerquist Dec 2011

A Permanent Endowment For The United States, Karl Widerquist

Karl Widerquist

The chapter argues that the United States can create a permanent resource-based endowment that could finance both a substantial dividend (in the form of an unconditional basic income) and a significant portion of government spending, perhaps nearly all government spending. It argues why endowment financing is a more progressive alternative to the more traditional approach of taxation and regulation.
