Green Tax Shift

I've mentioned my friend Stuart before. In recent weeks he's been working on this cartoon about the Green Tax Shift.

Two main thing i remembered from it...

1. We tax 'goods and services'. Wouldn't it be better to tax things that are bads and dis-services (like waste and pollution)?

2. Taxing pollution makes the planet-friendly choice the financially sensible choice. Companies will no longer have to choose between the planet and profits (we all know which they'd choose). When pollution is taxed, the way to make the best profit would be to minimise pollution.
