Publishers Description: The book was written by ANSA Director, Max Wallace PhD, and was published by ANSA in December 2007.The Purple Economy is defined as ‘the wealth generated by the eternal mass exemption from taxation of religious organizations, their subsidiaries and their charitable arms. Max Wallace argues democracies should be republics characterized by constitutional separations of church and state. He also argues it is not the role of a state to ‘advance religion through the myriad of tax breaks supernatural organizations receive by virtue of centuries old charity law. These are tithes by stealth imposed on secular taxpayers without their consent. The book concludes that supernatural organizations should pay tax like any other corporation with the same deductions allowable for charitable work.The Purple Economy is mostly focused on Australian society but it has clear application to all other western liberal democracies on all continents.
