I think the idea of a consumption tax over income tax is interesting? It definitely makes more academic sense to tax money when it is used rather than when it is earned, but it could also discourage consumers from spending money in the market.

I think it is definitely worth looking into further. This would be an incentive to save more for sure.

Nicole Vaughn's insight:

Not ony was my interest striked because I have a child and the court's theory of "best interest of the child" in my belief isn't always as they believe, but I'm also going into the law field. This article is quite interesting for anyone interested in legality.

Around the world in 7 startups: travelling ventures with a twist

Around the world in 7 startups: travelling ventures with a twist | Vaughn econ 202 | Scoop.it

If you’re planning on quitting your job anytime soon to travel the oyster that is our world, then this list will probably come in handy. On the other hand, if you’re merely interested in travel startups trying something new in emerging markets, it’ll also be interesting.

 

The web seems to be overflowing with travel and tourism startups. So much so that finding one that matters is difficult. Standing out from the rest means that entrepreneurs need to think outside of the box.

Branding your startup: why it's kinda important now | Vaughn econ 202 | Scoop.it

Sometimes genius doesn’t make money

 

No matter how brilliant an idea or product is, sometimes it’s quite hard to turn brilliance into profit. Strategically thinking about branding and the story that your brand is trying to tell will inadvertently lead to profit.

 

this is what most people don't know about branding ...

Take-aways from Economics & the Commons Conference (I)

Take-aways from Economics & the Commons Conference (I) | Vaughn econ 202 | Scoop.it

What a conference! It is still flooding my inbox. I guess, it was my first conference (and I’ve co-organized pretty many) where the idea of having a pre-conference process, the conference itself and a post-conference debate really worked out. We had “eruptions” of intense debates before we met in Berlin and we have plenty of post-conference reactions, especially on the question of how to move forward? All this will be documented on the Conference Communication Platform. Reports from participants, blogposts, summaries of side events (there were 8 of them!) and further debates will be collected there and elsewhere as in the Commons Abundance Network to be used by commoners and commoneers (a notion that was new to me) for ongoing debate and planning of next steps or joint action. Plus: there is the conference wiki,  actually a beyond-conference thematic wiki on the issues we dealt with at ECC.
