Universal Basic Prosperity: Sustainable prosperity for the 21st century

By Andrew Percy

This paper reviews the path of taxation in developed societies as they progressed from industrial economies to technically advanced economies over the 20th century. It demonstrates how attempts to suppress taxation, while preserving development status, are connected to insecure livelihoods, unstable finance, climate destruction, and weakened reciprocity.

The paper proposes establishing strong reciprocity by reforming tax, fiscal, and welfare arrangements, to align with achieving universal basic prosperity in the 21st century.
