Inconsistency exists in the political programs of “sovereign” movements. This is the flat tax that should boost the economy because less tax levy should mean more liquidity for spending. This is the liberal response to Keynesian deficit spending under the banner of less state control. But when it was implemented, the flat tax did not produce a revival of the economy while reducing the social benefits of the state. Moreover, it has proved to be a boomerang for the middle class which is the electoral base of the sovereign political forces, because it leads as a final result, to the process of dependence of this class, of the working class and of private finance, which replaces on credit the social benefits previously rendered by the State through the tax levy. Reduction of taxes is possible, but the road must be different, namely reducing the weight of interest on the public debt by reprogramming the Central Bank to subsidize, at zero or without interest, the monetary needs of the State.
