What would you like to do if money were no object?

Here’s what Alan Watts asked:

I would like to spend my life coordinating discussions on issues of moral, social and political relevance and working with other people to act on those discussion and resolutions to make the world better, both in terms of discrete community projects and grand plans for a thoughtfully (re)designed society. Collaboration with others and the wisdom of others is crucial to me in this goal. I would also like to maintain close and loving connections with my family and my dearest friends, making sure that I have enough time to spend with them.

Political News – RS – Tax on Financial Transactions…

Tim O'Reilly's profile photo

  –  Yesterday 5:22 PM  –  Public
This ad is very, very well done. Well worth watching, even if you don’t agree, for Bill Nighy’s splendid acting.

I suspect the proposed tax on financial transactions wouldn’t raise as much money as projected, because it might put a major damper on speculative activity by banks. While the proposed tax appears to be very small, the reason it would raise so much money is that the volume of financial transactions is so high. Trillions of automated transactions that collectively make billions of profit for banks might actually make only a small profit per transaction. The tax might thus be a larger part of the profit on each transaction, making certain kinds of financial churn no longer profitable.

I think this is likely a good thing. But there may be better ways to achieve the same goal.
