A basic income tax: Asking everyone within a society to pay 10% BIT and dividing this amount through its population = Basic Income For One

(In the Netherlands for example, this would sum up to a basic income for everyone of $350 a month, in South Africa $90 a month for everyone, etc.)

The idea I am proposing could be implemented everywhere, regardless of the size of the society it is implemented in.

The advantage of such a tax would be:

  • Equality

  • Families with many children would get more support

  • People that can't work would be safe

  • The division of poor and rich would shrink and with it criminality

  • Everyone would feel more as an equal part of society

If we would tax everyone in the world 10% Basic Income Tax and divide this amount through the world population, we would generate a basic income for every one on earth of $60 and that would be the end of extreme poverty!

I liked it until it got to the point where you mentioned "families with many children would get more support", because isn't that a big problem we have now? I think we should encourage people to only have a family the size of which they can financially support.

This is a plausible start.

Once again... this came directly word for word from this source: http://www.ted.com/conversation...sking_eve.html

And the person who came up with this should have explained how it's supposed to work a little better.
