Economic secession

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Economic secession has been variously defined. In its narrowest sense, it is abstention from the state's economic system, such as by replacing the use of government money with barter, Local Exchange Trading Systems, or commodity money such as gold.

In 2003, John T. Kennedy used the term to refer to all human action that is forbidden by the state[1] and explains economic secession as tax avoidance or refusal to follow regulations as a method to reduce government control.

Economic secession takes government out of the equation in making economic decisions. Trading happens through payment in-kind, cash, and barter.[2]

Economic secession is a way for the individuals to withdraw their wealth for both economic and political reasons. If individuals disagree with the use of tax money to fund a political agenda, they use economic secession as a means of privately protesting the control of government in their lives. The opinion that government is too involved in society fuels individuals to withdraw economically and view their withdrawal from the government system as a moral stand.[3]
