We didn't want to encourage creation of a two-tier society where some pay more to have others work more. Ours is a particularly mixed-income community, but I think the principle applies generally. >> h-m-m-m. Interesting. What did your group think about personal budgeting, both of time and of money? ...these choices that every person has... Some people budget huge amounts of personal income for continuing education in their adult life. They don't just "have" more money now; they may have made great sacrifices to get it. They may be absorbed in work (or in enjoying their leisure!) and find that time is now a scarcer resource than money - to be spent very, very carefully. If you think about it, both time to live and money to spend are limited, finite resources in most people's lives. We are all empowered to make personal choices about their use, based on what we value. I don't think I'd wanna try to engineer that overmuch.
