Deirdre Kent, “Combining resource (including land) taxes, monetary reform and basic income is the political challenge of our time”

Deirdre Kent is the co-founder and co-leader of the New Economics Party in New Zealand, and she writes on the three main economic issues her party seeks to address: “the monetary reform movement, (including reforming the national currency and having a whole range of complementary currencies), the tax reform movement to move towards land and other resource taxes and away from income tax and sales tax, and thirdly the movement for a basic income, giving an unconditional, basic income to all people where paid work may not be available for all people.”

  • Hi Mrs Kent,

    I would like to get in touch with persons in your organisation who are establishing a way of introducing basic income and/in complementary currencies.

    I’ve put together a high level proposal but it needs to be refined (see website link towards the presentation). My aim is to establish a detailed roadmap that every community could take on board, without having to re-invent the wheel each time.

    Thank you in advance for your feedback.
