Stop using the Blockbuster Video model to fund the government

A Constitutional Budget (Part 2 of 3)

Key Points

  • Blockbuster Video collected around 16% of their revenue from late fees, thus they were incentivized to have fees be a part of their expected income and make it more likely to have customers pay them through arcane rules.

  • So, too, are the various governments in the United States. This can be seen in examples such as police departments being funded through parking tickets.

  • Penalties collected for the violation of the law should be automatically redirected to unrelated programs, and if there are none returned to the people of the area from where they were collected.
