From The Common People
- We will establish a "Public Utility" category of business, for which we will prohibit the distribution of dividend payments. These are businesses which provide essential and unavoidable services to the public.
- These essential services include the generation, distribution and supply of piped water, power, electronic communications infrastructure, schools and public transport.
- Money paid by private households to this category of business is for maintenance, improvement, operating costs and taxation. It is not paid by private households to be siphoned off for the enrichment of shareholders, unlike private household money paid by choice.
