  • Switzerland's lower house rejects basic income, but poll shows popular support
    pm Unforntunately money doesn t grow on trees This is the stupidest idea ever and I m glad it was rejected Of yourse when you go ask people on the street if they would like some FREE money they will say yes Special income should be reserved to people who really need it Reply Boby November 5 2015 at 5 46 am You are aware Bob that a long list of Nobel prize winning economists have endorsed some form of Basic Income Guarantee including James Tobin Milton Friedman James Buchanan James Meade Paul Krugman F A Hayek Herbert A Simon and Robert Solow Istvan December 15 2015 at 10 01 am It s interesting how many people beleive how over the long term the basic income concept would result in epidemic laziness I think the converse to be true in that basic income is not means tested and this means more people would choose to be in paid employment than sit at home doing nothing on un employment benefits which are neans tested Sure there would be some people who may still choose to do nothing for periods of time but I think the basic income concept is a system superior to traditional means tested systems which discourage finding paid employment and require intense spending on fraud detection technologies as people frequently try to work without their unemployment payments being affected Geert Poppe January 29 2016 at 2 57 pm Bob Are you a turkey If you ask I a turkey what they want to have for Christmas Dinner I ll guess they hardly ever will choose turkey Ezo January 30 2016 at 12 25 pm You re right It doesn t grow on trees That would require effort to harvest it Instead it s just information You change few magnetic patterns on some HDD s and bam you have money Pingback Could Basic Income really be implemented Nova workboard Pingback Profissão Robô R Evolução Peixe Babel John Pozzi October 21 2015 at 3 54 pm For universal basic income network http www GRB net John Reply Perce Harpham November 14 2015 at 2 17 am See my website for a paper on a practical and affordable methodolgy for having a Basic Income in New Zealand The paper describes an Asset Tax on property with Tax Relief payments so that those with less assets are compensated for the Asset Tax A spreadsheet is also given so that different choices of Relief and UBIs can be made with the results calculated for individuals The results are a matter of choice by Government to determine who are the winners and losers Reply Shirley0401 November 17 2015 at 3 55 pm I ve long since stopped being surprised or disheartened to see politicians choosing to prioritize abstractions like market confidence and economic stability over even modestly forward thinking ideas that challenge the dominant neoliberal narrative When the status quo appears to be increasingly fragile and unsustainable isn t tear ing the whole system

  • Basic Income Alternatives Reconsidered | BIEN
    give cash for doing nothing because the affluent societies of today have to be responsible for the lack of job opportunities Giving cash to the needy and letting them choose what to do with it has been shown to be not only just but also cost effective Among other pilot experiments like the one in India 3 it is noteworthy to remember the success of giving cash to homeless people in London 4 or home for the homeless in Utah 5 The excellent results cost less than the usual city expenses for caring for the homeless in both cases The winning GiveDirectly initiative in Kenia and Uganda also reinforces the idea of addressing the poor Many other experiments exist with excellent results The social services network present in all countries should be used The first measure I propose considering Brazil is to remove all conditionalities linked to Bolsa Família or to unemployment benefits The bureaucracy should analyze requests from the needy families or individuals without income After entering the monthly grant system the newcomer would have a generous time interval years before the grant expires This longer interval will remove the poverty trap long enough for progress out of the grant system In case a lack of income remains the person family will apply near the end of the allotted time to stay in the system So whoever is in need will be helped and whoever falls into economic need will be supported The amount paid should be enough for the basic needs of the person family Recipients who want to advance economically will pursue whatever full or part time jobs are available or even start a business The basic monthly cash should be followed with provisions of communal facilities for support and education for the beneficiaries whenever appropriate In parallel some of the suggestions exposed 6 in the Get America Working study could be implemented to reduce the cost of having workers by means of a tax rearrangement that would drastically shorten the current payroll expenses and many more jobs could be created Reducing economic uncertainty will have multiple benefits for society the mental health value of reducing the anxiety and stress linked to insecurity the social environment will be safer and most importantly the poverty trap will be neutralized unleashing the creative potential of men and women Francisco G Nóbrega MD PhD is President of the Municipal Council for the Citizen s Basic Income in the city of Santo Antonio do Pinhal SP Brazil francisco nobrega gmail com The opinions expressed here are solely those of the author I thank Jim Hesson for improving the English and suggestions by him and Marina P Nobrega 1 Race Against the Machine how the digital revolution is accelerating innovation driving productivity and irreversibly transforming employment and the economy Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McFee 2011 Digital Frontier Press Mass USA 2 The future of employment how susceptible are jobs to computerization Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A Osborne 2013 http www oxfordmartin
