Martijn Arets:

"The Ex-Tax project is working on a proposal to lower labor tax (an increasing resource in the economy) and raising tax on commodities (a decreasing resource):

“High taxes on labour encourage businesses to minimise their number of employees. Resources, however, tend to be untaxed; they are used unrestrained. This system causes unemployment, overconsumption and pollution.

Ex’tax is the proposal to put taxes on natural resources and pollution, and using the revenues to lower the tax burden on labour and increase (social) spending. Such tax reform creates incentives to save resources and the natural world. It also enables job creation and supports those who need it most.”
