UBI based on sales tax to eliminate the income tax code. Consumerism is so successful because the actual costs are externalized and people have no idea what the cost/value of anything is. They only know the deceptive prices.

'Studies show' that if people see an option that is easier or cheaper, they will take that option. We have to make consumptionism harder than being useful to the future of a place or our offspring.

Income tax codes discourage usefulness and encourage consumption through debt (enslaving our future selves).

All decisions in a market society are made at the checkouts. That's where people need to know the costs if they are to make better choices.
