Here is an interesting point of view on the workings of (terminal) capitalism. Some years ago, I remember The Dutch government introducing legislation of limiting the maximum salary to six times the average salary. No one could earn more than six time the average income. It was considered the right move to introduce fiscal equality amongst the working Dutch.
I don’t know what happened to this move but I do know that Holland in the seventies and eighties went through enormous change in bringing about a more just society. On many levels this has worked very well. Especially on social levels such as in general health, aged care, pensions, lowering rates of crime.
Holland is now seeking to pass laws whereby the use of petrol and diesel cars will be discontinued in the near future and changed into electric driven cars. Prison populations are dwindling and in New York City you buy tulips in the afternoon that were picked in Holland that same morning. It seems, the Dutch have many admirable solutions to modern problems.
Amazingly, Holland is also the second largest producer and exporter of agricultural products in the world despite it also being one of the smallest and most densely populated country. How is this possible?
