  • OPINION: Why Jay Hammond favored a larger dividend, higher taxes, and smaller government | BIEN
    a regressive head tax falling heaviest on those who can least afford to relinquish this wealth But because it is not taken out of their paychecks the tax remains hidden A large dividend would contribute to personal independence Hammond speculates that were every Alaskan annually granted his full per capita share of the wealth we could eliminate or vastly curtail all welfare programs unemployment insurance and subsidies 319 The supporters of income tax abolition he notes are first of all the wealthy who stand to benefit from lower taxes more than they would gain from larger equal per capita dividends Secondly a legislature flush with money that no one is watching becomes a tool of special interests Hammond says to proponents of income tax repeal though you seem perfectly willing to cut down on the little guy s living by slicing social programs like welfare you seem unconcerned about boosting living for select interests through subsidies such as lower than market rate loans and other hidden dividends not based on need Some might call that corporate welfare 265 Thus we find another classic republican theme promotion of the general good over particular interests alongside Hammond s concerns for personal independence progressive taxation and more engaged citizens All of these ends are well served by a large dividend and funding of government through income taxes There are some blind spots in his thinking While he recognizes the legitimacy of government spending on the basis of need or constitutional obligation he seems not very sensitive to the case to be made for government spending for public goods There are some goods we all benefit from that the market will not deliver efficiently no matter how much income we have And his outlook is narrowly nationalistic aiming for what is good for all Alaskans not even all Americans as is evident in the above quotations referring to non Alaskans In his original dividend proposal found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court Hammond wanted those who had lived in Alaska longer to receive larger dividends Why one might ask should Alaskans enjoy a large dividend because of Alaska s oil while Vermonters say with fewer resources could only give themselves a much smaller dividend Shouldn t the unearned natural wealth of the United States be shared equally by all Americans Or to go a step further shouldn t the natural resources of the earth be shared equally by all of its inhabitants not just those fortunate to be born on top of rich deposits of oil or other wealth This of course is not a blind spot peculiar to Hammond or political thinkers in the republican tradition and getting beyond it in practical politics will require the strengthening of institutions and an ethos of solidarity at the federal and global levels As these emerge the global community may have something to learn from the example of the Permanent Fund Dividend including the thinking of its strongest advocate All references are to Jay Hammond Tales of
