Excellent start! Bated breath, and all that.

Taxes = Insurance Premiums (Health, Education, Security)

Mike, I think you forgot a major goal: redistribution.

I think you could put that that under point 1.

Where does selling off crown land or mineral rights fall? A tax on future generations? A balance sheet accounting entry?

David: That's a really good point that I should cover. That being said, I agree with Stephen. Will alter the post to clarify.

David: Post updated (in a number of areas) - hope this clarifies things!

Just Visiting: I'd place those under the same 'other' category as revenues from crown corporations.

Yeah, you're right - not a "purpose of taxation".

Thanks Mike! I agree with you now.
