Instead of cashless why not turn value free ?


Over the years, many domains of the state have been taken over by private interests - e.g. schools., colleges, hospitals, medical centers, security, sanitation, utilities.


As one expects more govt revenue now, why not get a guarantee from the state to provide quality outcomes in each of these for free without the need for either cards or mobile payments.

That makes sense! Such a demand from the government leaves no room for misinterpretation or ambiguity. And it's not like they don't have the resources to follow up on such promises. Only the intent is lacking.

Agreed that only the intent is lacking. But that in itself is no small thing. Everyone looks at personal gain before national gain.


Vikram Gupta , Exploring, learning, believing Nov, 28 2016


But effort has to be made to overcome this. We can't just take it to be a given and not do anything about it.

In a Utopian world, yes, that seems like the way to go. But we need to understand that corruption isn't present only at government level, it's a disease which prevails at every level. Increase in revenue is one thing, translating that into things like 'guarantees' and 'quality outcomes' isn't just the government's headache, it requires a seismic shift in the ideology of the masses.

It's easy to disregard propositions under the guise of idealism. If we set out to do this, even if we reach halfway, we'll be a 100 times better off than right now.

Most corruption is generated when private interests collude with government discretion. Thats the double black. The single black of tax evasion of course occurs when private schools/ hospitals / other businesses do not put their revenue on books or inflate costs.


A government leadership that is willing to take bold gambles can easily exhort society to change habits e.g. the current push to cashless. Before asking the poor to go cashless, why not provide them what every state ought to in any case.
