Here's some food for thought: high taxes on labour make businesses minimize their number of employees. Resources, however, remain untaxed; they are used unrestrained. This system causes unemployment and scarcity of resources. Not very clever right? 
Ex’tax think it's time to increase tax on resources and decrease tax on labour. This creates an incentive to use materials sensibly. It also makes services more affordable and boosts manpower, craftsmanship and creativity. Ex’tax enables a circular economy and sustainable prosperity. Just what we need!
