    Europe's Black Market Economy Is Booming

    I believe that the economies of the future will not be anything like they are today. That human beings have to rely on corporations to survive (work) in the 21st century is amazing to anyone that has studied history. Work-to-live is an anachronishm, or is very close to it. As soon as robots do all the work that no one wants to do, and all is left to do are things that people want to do anyway paid-or-not, work to survive will disappear. 2050 to 2100.

    That people are taking things into their own hands is completetly logical. But have they gone far enough? The world is wealthy, and yet a huge fraction of the worlds population is going rogue, as they should.

    Russia tried that in 90's. by doing this they create a huge black market where cash is king and nobody paying the taxes at all. people 's mentality changed completely. now,when they have 13% flat tax many of them still refusing to pay anythings. US making a huge mistake by choosing same patch.
    many small businesses already offer better deals, when you pay in cash. guess why?----

    sorry,but English is not my native language

    When laws are dumb enough eventually more and more people start ignoring them.

    NOT to change the subject. But as an example only. I heard the other day that it's still illegal in most states to have sex in your car. Is there anyone over age 16 that hasn't broken that law?

    Nitro, in today's circumstance, in your estimation what % of the population would have a "Job" if all the fake work, hamster-wheel stuff was eliminated?

  6. "The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt."

    ~(Most of you already know exactly who said this)
