Jubilee nation

Say there was a nation that proposed to ride the wave and force a Jubilee every seven years. All debts are off after that span. Next span; start over...

Such a nation would end up like a software-development team running a civilisational "sprint cycle". Any big projects would have to be planned around the time of the Jubilee and started on its first year afterward. The society would have a realistic(ish) view of where it planned to be in seven years, and it would also have a bias toward organising itself. And there would be unity: everyone would be in on the seven-year plan.

Obviously it didn't work for the USSR. It might work better for a more homogeneous and industrious society with a more predictable climate.

The problem is, dear boy, events.
