If you look at the Divine Economy Model © you will notice that taxation does not appear to be present at all in the model. What this means is that, theoretically speaking, taxation is not necessarily present in a divine economy. Taxation is not necessarily absent either.
Economics is the study of the means to obtain the ends chosen. If some type of taxation is the best means for achieving order in a cooperative society that protects life and liberty then taxation serves a purpose and it is present.
In a society where property rights are well-defined, and refined, and protected, taxation will be either minimal or absent. As long as taxation is restrained by laws that protect and enforce property rights then taxes will be held to a minimum. The law and order of the divine economy is a reflection of life and liberty which means that taxes need to be zero or minimal so as not to disrupt the flow of knowledge inherent in the free market process.
Divine Economy Theory Policy #11: Since under most circumstances taxation is a deterrent to private production and employment there is no sound economic reason to generate tax revenue to support a government beyond its purpose. The purpose of government is to protect life and liberty.
