  • The Basic Income Guarantee: what stands in its way?
    The first problem is that it sounds too good to be true We have been told to be suspicious of anyone promising a free lunch and giving people money for doing nothing certainly seems like a costless gift Fear of scarcity is built into our DNA For the BIG to seem viable for most people they need to learn that demand not supply is the bottleneck of growth We need to recognize that money is something humans create not something with fixed and limited supply With Quantitative Easing central banks created money and gave it to the financial sector hoping it would stimulate lending Today even mainstream figures like Lord Adair Turner Martin Wolf and even Ben Bernanke recognize that helicopter drops of money into individuals bank accounts could have been more effective Technocrats are beginning to recognize the practicality of Basic Income We in the economic blogosphere need to bring this message into the public eye The rise of the robots ever declining prices for goods and services and disappearing jobs may ultimately teach this lesson more effectively than any number of well meaning essays The second problem is sociological Most of us are still in employment We feel in some fundamental way that our work makes us more worthy than lazy layabouts on benefits This simultaneously makes us disinclined to raise benefits for others or increase the number of people on benefit and equally disinclined to think of ourselves as the kind of people that receive money from the state Adam Smith in The Theory of Moral Sentiments the book he considered his masterpiece said that we humans are motivated primarily by the regard of others We want people to think well of us and we want to think well of ourselves The psychological pleasure of considering ourselves better than welfare recipients can trump genuine economic benefit To overcome this objection we need to recognize that defining ourselves by our jobs is very 20 th century If technological progress continues to kill traditional jobs this objection too will eventually dissipate As full time jobs become harder to find more of us will recognize the need for a BIG The third problem is perhaps the most central By stimulating the economy and pushing it towards its production possibilities frontier the Basic Income Guarantee will be growth enhancing but it is undeniable that it will also be redistributive The pie will be larger but it will be sliced differently For the past 30 years we have stimulated the economy by shoveling money towards rich people A BIG shovels money towards poor people And for many in the top 1 that is anathema Conservatives generally favor tax cuts as a way of stimulating the economy Although they do not like to admit it this is textbook Keynesianism As long as the government does not cut spending more money in consumers pockets will inevitably increase demand Unfortunately tax cuts generally favor the richest among us and they unlike the poor are liable to save rather than spend their windfall Stimulating savings is a waste of a tax cut Today we have an over abundance of saving and a shortfall of investment and consumption A BIG can be thought of as a tax cut targeted to those most likely to spend it which is what the economy needs The Basic Income Guarantee solves the problem of demand stimulates the economy increases corporate profits gives workers more freedom and provides a safety net to the most vulnerable It is economically sound and politically savvy But the very rich do not fear unemployment they fear redistribution and they will be the most significant force against the implementation of the BIG Related reading Frances Coppola The changing nature of work Coppola Comment August 5 2012 Francesc Coppola The wastefulness of automation Pieria

    of wine for fundraising events but always requested an overage and then CHARGED for glasses of wine at the event thereby assuring that there was extra left over that she took home for herself and gave to friends Yikes But it happens The usual situation is that most charities are underfunded and overwhelmed Mistakes and misunderstandings stress and strain is common burnout common and organizational strain complying to the ever increasing demands of a state that would rather lean on charities instead of managing the economy properly and fairly The truth is nobody really wants to be on the receiving end of charity if they can help it It s humiliating for most people I ve used those services myself especially when I had kids just to survive Also I have walked others through the process of getting help from getting food stamps applying for disability benefits taking them to the food or clothing bank for the first time It s not a fun situation in the case of the food banks I have had to help people with special dietary needs and so they are limited in what is there to take home because instead of being able to choose what they need from a store they have to pick through what was donated and hope for the best Ditto those going to a clothing bank Hope it fits Doesn t smell funny I have to give kudos to the wonderful organizations that get this right and work really hard at it But here is the situation minimum wage and part time workers are the working poor They are working but they are not making enough to make it They require support EVERY month and now many have done this for years decades generations Month after month if you go into a store in a moderate to poor neighborhood and right around the first of the month you will see what are the cheap eats because those with food stamps will have emptied those sections and there will be rectangular holes on the store shelves where the bargains were cleaned out This is not about how people are trying to survive but how we have an economic system that has been systemically weak for a very long time There are whole levels of our economy organizations and corporations that benefit by there being a poverty class For example banks by being the issuers of food cards are getting a kickback on each transaction Almost all states could make the choice to create their own banks for dealing with state benefit programs like North Dakota has and thereby save money for the state government but do not Organizations and individuals that BENEFIT from there being a poor class are not likely to want to change the situation If we have an industry that benefits from poverty how are we going to get rid of poverty I would love it if every person who works for an organization or BANK or
