  • Harry Musgrave,

    Keith Rankin - not at all a right wing guy - has been proposing a flat tax system with a univeral wage for some years. He had a third component which was a kind of supplement for those people not able to work (sickness beneficiarys etc).

    His theory was we could all agree on the tax structure and then we could argue politically as to what rate the flat tax should be (I think he was talking of about 42%) and what the universal wage would be.
    Seems eminently sensible to me and I was surprised to see Gareth Morgan suggesting something so similar.
