  • The Basic Income Guarantee: what stands in its way?
    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

comments Christian Holata December 23 2015 at 8 40 am We need to communicate the need for a cooperative monetary system Otherwise we might implement an UBI and when the inevitable collapse of our monetary system finally arrives it will be blamed on the UBI and utopian leftist ideas We need to create money without interest and debt Otherwise an UBI can not be maintained and the infinite growth paradigm necessitated by our contemporary monetary system will continue to destroy our minds society and planet http sacred economics com Reply Francis Oublieux December 30 2015 at 5 09 am Just
