  • My libertarian-socialist working feeling | BIEN
    a new way of talking about that activity which we are free to do when the yoke of scarcity jobs is removed Reply Andre Coelho November 3 2015 at 12 43 am Hi Thank you very much for your contribution Indeed there will be a day when work joy and play will all mingle together If motivated human beings can even execute hard troublesome activities with a smile on their faces Just imagine if even those activities can be done by machines leaving us only with that stuff really challenging that really contribute to our inner growth to the core of our happiness Basic income is a step towards that future and that s path we are already walking through Best regards André Liane Gale November 11 2015 at 8 00 am To akaPaul LaFargue Whenever the Technological Unemployment and Therefore We Need a Basic Income harpers comment we are always reminded that in the coming machine age the yoke of scarcity jobs is removed This implies a life of leisure Never have I heard anybody commenting though on the work that will stay caring for each other and the planet Why is care centered work not considered in these discussions even though it represents the majority of work being done today when one considers unpaid and paid work together and which will not get whisked away by robots hopefully Why is care centered work not valued at all by the dominant economic and political systems And not even by supposedly forward thinking Futurists To answer this and act on it accordingly would save humanity and the planet Reply akaPaul LaFargue November 14 2015 at 8 15 am To Liane Gale Isn t this whole report about care centered work I can t imagine a better way to encourage care centered work than by providing for as much leisure as possible dr dig November 12 2015 at 12 48 am First time visitor to this site I see lots of ideological pontification on here but have yet to see any economic analysis of how such a system would work I haven t even seen any mention of how a UBI would be set that is how much money would the UBI be Who gets to define what a basic income is Who gets to decide what gets included in the calculations What happens when people waste their UBI on frivolous things and then still have their hand out to cover food utility and housing expenses Can anyone point me to detailed research on such things or is this really just an echo chamber for socialists that don t want to take up serious challenges to the ideology Reply Andre Coelho November 13 2015 at 8 37 pm Dear anonimous The amount of money needed to fund UBI varies from region to region and depends on several other factors such as the statistical line of poverty For Portugal for instance that value has been calculated at 435 month http www basicincome

  • OPINION: The Christmas Basket | BIEN
    again instructed to suspend our therapy sessions for the day We lined up the plastic yellow baskets in the back offices on pressed wood tables along with the canned goods the boxes of cookies powdered potatoes my bags of pink beans and so on The nurse brought in some tree tinsel she had left over from trimming her tree so we could decorate the baskets a little The frozen hams would go on top the day we gave the baskets away The plan now was to announce the baskets and give them away on the last day of class before Christmas The principal would do this at the end of the year holiday party for the students and parents Sometime after the meal the principal would make her speech and in the process announce that several families had been chosen to receive special help for the holiday Then the families would take their baskets home I went to see the principal later on in the day The baskets are really heavy already and we don t even have the hams in them yet I said I told her I was worried that parents not knowing they d have to bring home anything this heavy and large wouldn t have any way to get the baskets home We should tell them even though it would no longer be a surprise I said The principal agreed that this might be a problem but that most people lived a few blocks away I reminded her that while that was true they had children with them and it might be impossible to manage with both Furthermore most families lived in walk ups and would need help to get the baskets up the stairs Later she announced that Frank would remain on call in case one or two families needed a ride A teacher suggested that if we gave a ride to one family then every family would expect one Well I think we are doing way too much for them the teacher said Isn t it enough they are getting the gift basket They should work out their own way home There was a small glitch when we were almost done wrapping the baskets not the best quality plastic was used in their overseas manufacture and they began to break in spots We convened to see how to solve this problem For one returning the baskets was impossible for despite their poor quality we had forced very hard objects into them rather than clothing which was not the baskets intended use We d have a rough time proving our case to the 99 cents store owner Second unpacking the baskets would be too time consuming each of us was now on our third day of working on this good deed and the kids had missed three days of therapy already If they missed a fourth day we d never catch up So we decided to reinforce each basket by wrapping it in plastic wrap That way the mothers and some fathers would be able to see their bounty and if the basket broke more the plastic wrap would hold it together long enough to get it home The occupational therapist ran out of the building with her own money to get some at the supermarket I was being reminded that every solution creates a new problem and every new problem has somewhere a solution Roberta and I wrapped up our last one each team of two people wrapped two baskets on the carpeted floor of her office Her objections to the project s many impositions and cultural incorrectness had finally given way to acceptance Between handing me pieces of tape and cursing when the plastic wrap stuck to itself she joked how all the canned goods were going to end up in the back of kitchen cabinets to remain there only if things got really bad in the New Year We discussed the relative weirdness of giving a box of powered potatoes to a people who only tolerate real potatoes when they can t find another root vegetable la malanga la ňame pronounced nyame and la yuca being way more flavorful than the unimaginative potato For the most part I had given up on talking to my colleagues or my boss about the ethical and practical problems with the basket project It consumed human resources meant to be spent on existing work and therapy it did not consider the real needs or preferences of the families It created unexpected work for them having to get the things home having to figure out what to do with it all once it was unpacked finally the project cost a lot of money in man hours of six professionals who are paid about 35 an hour times three seven hour days equals 4 410 in labor plus the 100 spent on the contents of each the cost of the six baskets 1 99 cents each and the gas for Frank s vehicle Roberta and I talked about what an incredible help it would have been to instead take that 5 000 and divide it by 53 and give the cash out evenly among all the families whereupon they could have chosen how to spend the nearly 100 bucks themselves and bought real potatoes and real cranberries if they d wanted to While decorating the baskets with tinsel I noticed the writing on the box that said not safe for children who may be put mouth Translation Toxic to children below three years old I remembered that one of our cats had gotten sick from chewing tinsel when I was a kid We all pulled off the tinsel and threw it away The occupational therapist ducked out of the festivities right before the principal stood up to lead a prayer and get to the business of the Christmas Baskets The day of the party had arrived and the occupational therapist was charged with putting a frozen ham with

  • Book review of Birnbaum, Simon. 2012. Basic Income Reconsidered: Social Justice, Liberalism, and the Demands of Equality | BIEN
    incorporated in wages of privileged jobs must me considered as resources to which all are entitled Birnbaum distinguishes a weak and a strong version of this objection and argues that Van Parijs jobs as gifts argument according to which the employment rents should be considered as common resources to which all have an equal claim survives the strong version of the restriction objection However this is only possible if some qualifications related to the long term stability of justice are incorporated to the argument These qualifications are developed in the second chapter in a clear and convincing reconstruction and defence of Van Parijs jobs as gifts argument for basic income According to Birnbaum if Van Parijs argument is to be successful in rejecting the exploitation objection apart from accommodating the stability of justice clause it also needs to accommodate some considerations regarding the social and economical conditions of basic autonomy which are fleshed out in part one of Birnbaum s book The third and last part of the book untitled The Feasibility of Basic Income Social Ethos Work and the Politics of Universalism is divided in two chapters The first chapter proposes a conception of a work ethics which is compatible with liberal neutrality Contra Van Parijs Birnbaum argues for a non obligatory work ethos which avoids any perfectionist implications by proposing a wide definition of an ethos of contribution which includes activities that are not productivist However Birnbaum acknowledges that his anti perfectionist definition of a work ethics although having the advantage of being compatible with neutrality also exposes itself to the structural exploitation objection since it does not protect self sacrificing individuals to be exploited by selfish ones Birnbaum 2012 160 But this is not the freedom that liberal neutrality should protect nor the freedom that radical liberal egalitarians seek to promote through the implementation of a basic income For this reason Birnbaum tries to avoid this consequence of his redefinition of the work ethos by introducing the notion of a minimal autonomy to which all individuals must have access if they are to avoid ethical servility and make well informed choices about their life plans Birnbaum 2012 162 As a neutralist one might worry here that Birnbaum s minimal autonomy constraint implies a work ethos and a duty to contribute which after all may not be compatible with liberal neutrality although it clearly is less perfectionist than the alternative of a strictly productivist ethos while at the same time resisting well to the exploitation objection The last chapter proposes an exploration of the political implications of radical liberalism in practical policy issues such as political legitimacy environmental sustainability and gender equity The author explores these issues in a clear and well informed way The book ends with a realistic proposal by arguing for a gradualist implementation of a basic income scheme Overall the book is a major contribution to the liberal egalitarian literature on basic income About BIEN has written 8 articles View all posts by BIEN
