How to make a perfect world in one step:
"Perfect" means "having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics;".
[see OxfordDictionaries.com, result 1, retrieved 10th December 2014]
Land rent creates all the desired elements, qualities and characteristics of a world:
Moral laws exist to create the most resources for society and the individual. [to be continued]
So correct (i.e. moral) property laws can be measured as those that create the most resources.
If someone is paid more resources than they add, there is a net loss. [by definition]
The worker wants resources, so if they are paid less then they add, they will tend to withhold work until paid more.
So for maximum resources, the worker should be paid what they add.
Correct property laws are those that create the most wealth for society. [see 'property laws']
The most wealth is created if you are paid what you add. [see 'optimal price']
So your economic property equals whatever you add to society.
Intellectual property has a very small physical presence so can be easily copied. [by definition]
So it is harder to track the value added.
So it requires a more efficient and more trusted government. [see 'deal government' below]
Government create laws. [by definition]
These laws exist to increase resources. [see 'property laws']
So the value of a government is the monetary value added to resources. [see 'optimal-price']
Land value is increased by the presence of nearby roads, markets, services, etc. [by definition]
So that added value is created by society, and is therefore the property of society. [see 'measuring property']
For maximum wealth creation the value of a thing should be paid to the one who creates it. [see 'optimal price']
Tax increases prices. [by definition]
So work was barely affordable becomes unaffordable.
So less work is done.
To avoid land rent [see 'land rent'], idle land will be sold to those who can use it.
So land (in total) will be used more efficiently.
Land rent cannot increase the total cost of land, as it is already at its maximum (for a given economy). [see notes]
Meanwhile interest rates cannot go higher, as they are already at their maximum (for a given economy). [see notes]
But more land will enter the market, so the land price will go down. [see 'land use']
Land rent requires less paperwork (as it only measures one thing, and that thing does not change often). [by definition]
Land rent does not subsidise a dead weight of non-payers (as land cannot be hidden).
Rent makes simply owning land less profitable. [see 'land rent']
So land speculation will go down.
So land prices will be more stable.
Each of the above effects increases economic efficiency. [see previous points]
So the economy will grow faster each year.
So absolute wealth under land rent will be far more than under tax.
Land rent is a big change, and big changes can be difficult. [by definition]
So it will be easy for those who lose out to stop it.
So any introduction of land rent must ensure nobody loses out (or it will not happen).
If rent makes land unprofitable then its selling price (and thus rent) go down until it is profitable again. [by definition]
Prices will eventually recover due to the faster growing economy. [see 'more wealth']
So governments can compensate owners using bonds based on expected future value. [see notes]
Land rent is simple: just one thing to measure (not thousands of taxes). [see 'land rent']
Land has a very high value, so even a very small change is worth measuring.
There are millions of plots of lands to compare, so even tiny influences can be identified statistically.
Land rent makes it easy to see exactly what each person pays. [see 'sensitive measure']
The improved economy means workers will be in more demand. [see 'tax' for why land rent increase employment]
So it becomes easy to make a deal.
So deal making will become an industry. [see 'deals']
... with be an ever increasing choice of rules.
So land rent equals the value created by government.
Land rent allows many variant governments. [see 'ideal government']
The value of each can be accurately measured. [see 'sensitive measure']
So we can scientifically determine which are best.
Choosing a government implies greater agreement. [see 'ideal government']
Hence greater trust.
Hence more willingness to share information.
Land rent creates and shares better information. [see 'sharing information']
Every decision contributes to land values. [see 'sensitive measure']
Governments will compete for land rent. [see 'ideal government']
So there will be better decisions in all areas.
Better decisions imply few opportunities for crime. [see 'better decisions']
More trust implies that the police have far better information. [see 'sharing information']
More jobs means nobody sees crime as their only choice. [see 'ending tax']
Rent is a measure of how much you want to live in an area. [by definition]
Or in other words, your overall happiness.
By creating more jobs, land rent creates competition for workers. [see 'ending tax']
So if governments only have land rent, they must compete to make people happier.
Land rent only charges per unit land. [by definition]
So if you don't use much land you can live extremely cheaply.
So with low rent added to the previous advantages (plenty of jobs, low prices, ideal government, general happiness) you have no cause for stress.
As the need for workers exceeds supply, governments that allow more workers will out-compete those that do not. [see 'competitive advantage']
So economic migration will be encouraged.
So the poor can simply move to better nations.
Anything that makes land more attractive to workers will raise the rent a government can claim. [see 'happiness']
So competition between nations will force them to make land more beautiful. [see 'ideal government']
If the value of land is owed as rent, then nobody benefits from simply grabbing land. [see 'land rent']
With an end to poverty, and a wide choice of government, there can be are no desperate people. [see 'poverty']
So there are fewer causes for wars.
Compound growth means any fixed cost soon becomes trivial. [see 'more wealth']
So faster compound growth means any previously expected income soon becomes trivial. [see 'more wealth']
So a tyrant can be offered much more money if he allows change.
Land rent measures everything more accurately. [see 'sensitive measure']
So environmental costs will be clear
A more efficient economy will [by definition] charge those who cause the problem.
Catastrophic scenarios can destroy everything that matters. [by definition]
A stronger, more flexible civilisation can prevent or reduce the damage. [by definition]
Land rent creates a stronger, more flexible civilisation. [see 'a perfect world']
So land rent can save the human race.
