In Machiavelli's, The Prince, what does Machiavelli consider the ideal economy?


The ideal economy, according to Machiavelli, is one in which there is little or no taxation. Thus the public is free to prosper as much as he or she desires, without any concern that the government will take anything away.
In this way, Machiavelli believed that the state would prosper, the people would support the leadership, and the leadership would stay happily in power over a wealthy state.
