  • the existing economy completely stable and fully self-regulating (with built-in safeguards against inflation)
  • an absolutely, positively, guaranteed, bulletproof income for adult citizens that would not involve taxes or debt, to be based on the current median income (so in the U.S., say, $15/hr.; $600/wk.; $31,200/yr.)
  • no unemployment (at no cost to anyone)
  • no poverty (without having to redistribute anything)
  • no taxes (of any kind)
  • no public debt (at any level of government)
  • more sustainability (even without additional regulations or any changes in behavior because demographics would govern output — passively)
  • all with no limit on income/wealth.
