Capitalism by Peter Saunders( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the collapse of socialism, capitalism is now poised to become a truly global system. Three major questions arise from this success: Can capitalism revolutionize the living standards of the poor nations in the way it has done in the West? Can the global ecosystem survive such a massive expansion of industrial output? And if capitalism prevails, will human beings be any happier as a result? After explaining how the capitalist system works, Peter Saunders draws on the latest evidence from around the world to provide a "social audit" of contemporary capitalism. He concludes with a review of capitalism's status in the countries where it originated

Taxploitation : the case for income tax reform( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new book, ten eminent authors explain why and how Australia's system of personal income tax needs reforming. The total tax take in Australia is around the OECD average, but tax on people's incomes is well above average. High income taxes undermine national prosperity. The top rate is out of line with most other western countries, which have been moving to lower and flatter rates. Because the threshold at which people start to pay tax is well below subsistence, people are taxed before they have earned enough to keep body and soul together. The interaction of tax and welfare creates dispiritingly high 'effective marginal tax rates' which deter people on welfare from looking for work and penalize low-wage families whenever they try to increase their take-home pay. Outside of the federal government there is a mounting demand that something radical needs to be done to tackle these problems. This book looks at the options and demonstrates that the case for radical reform is now unanswerable." - back cover
The government giveth, and the government taketh away : tax-welfare churning and the case for welfare state opt-outs by Peter Saunders( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australians are more prosperous than ever before, so the number of people needing government assistance should be falling. Yet the welfare state keeps getting bigger. This book explores this paradox. It asks why the government is spending more than ever on the welfare state when increasing numbers of people are earning enough to take care of themselves? The answer lies in the growth of 'tax-welfare churning.' In the past, the welfare state operated like Robin Hood, taking money from the rich and giving it to those who needed help. But today, the welfare state operates more like a giant piggy bank, taxing everybody but then giving most of the money back to the same people who paid it in. It would make more sense to leave us with our own money to spend ourselves rather than forcing us to hand over responsibility for key areas of our lives to politicians. Saunders suggests three ways Australians could be given back more control over their lives. Government should stop taxing low income earners. Workers should put money aside to cover temporary periods of joblessness rather than relying on benefits. And those who want to provide for themselves should be allowed to reduce their tax payments in return for accepting full responsibility for their own health care and retirement savings. The welfare state would still help those who need assistance, but it would no longer undermine the self-reliance of those who do not
