Example Germany: Loans to enterprises are increasing
Bankenverband, January 2009
Problem: High taxes on labor and goods; barely any taxes on bads => bias against ecologically responsible action.
Solution: A Natural Capital Depletion Tax would compensate for the damage caused during a product’s production process and redirect money flows quickly.
