    2. The ideas put forward in this book are excellent and even if you don't agree with all points it is excellent to see people thinking outside the square on tax and welfare. I don;t believe the curent target welfare system is fair on any party be it beneficiary or high income earner and the idea of a universal basic income seems like a good solution.For the most part it is an easy read except for a pretty heavy duty section on taxation. If you are in NZ and you are of voting age you should be readi [...]

    3. An interesting read. Although I did not agree with many of the proposals in the book, it certainly gave me a lot to think about. Well done to the authors for trying to get the public more involved in discussion of these very complex issues.
