  • OPINION: Iran’s Citizen’s Income Scheme and its Lessons | BIEN
    out by Philippe Van Parijs who contrasts Iran s approach with that of Alaska noting In many places this is a far more realistic option than an Alaska type permanent fund program the Alaska scheme is funded out of the interest collected from investments made worldwide with revenues generated by the production of oil at some point in the past whereas the Iranian scheme should be understood to be funded out of a tax on the current consumption of oil The Alaska type scheme is therefore restricted to resource rich sub countries that manage at some point to exercise sufficient political self restraint to create and develop a substantial fund The Iranian type scheme by contrast is available to any country that wants to price the consumption of oil in an ecologically responsible way and to buffer the effect on people s standard of living in a socially responsible way For this road to basic income to be a real option there is no need to first accumulate a large fund nor indeed to be an oil producing or resource rich country Philippe Van Parijs BIEN 2010 Congress A Brief Personal Account BIEN NewsFlash 62 2010 pp 2 4 www basicincome org bien pdf Flash62 pdf Over the longer term however the Alaska model has the advantage of a permanent flow whereas the Iran model does not Since the subsidies are being cut permanently one might presume that the compensatory transfers too would continue indefinitely But this is by no means certain Universal coverage and the transfer amount One of the main justifications for universality lies in the shortcomings of targeting but universal coverage has its cost too when the resources available are exogenously given or fixed as is the case in Iran since the funds available depend on the extent of price hikes and the volume of goods and services sold not on the scheme s coverage or the transfer amount The distribution of the funds is thus subject to a trade off between the number of beneficiaries and the amount of the transfer to each The universality thus comes at the expense of the lower income people who could have received more had those with higher incomes been excluded At the time of writing April 2012 there is increasing evidence that the principle of universality in Iran s scheme may be sacrificed with some better off households being dropped from the programme The current plan is to urge higher income earners to opt out of the transfer scheme voluntarily Households with an income above a couple of thousand dollars a month a fairly large amount of money in Iran are being invited to consider giving up their cash subsidy in whole or in part the options are the entire amount half the amount or any addition to the transfer amount in the second phase of the programme No one knows how they will respond If enough of them agree to withdraw the matter will have been settled If not the government will have to decide how to proceed Constituency building The subsidy reform in Iran was a government initiative that far from enjoying public support aroused deep anxiety throughout the society It was the most radical economic transformation Iranians were going to experience in living memory The cash transfer component of it was designed in part to alleviate public concern and build support for the reform on the strength of the argument that a large part of the population would in fact receive more in cash subsidy than they would lose from cuts in price subsidies Universal coverage came about for lack of a practical alternative It had few advocates per se and may yet prove to be short lived even if retreating from it may be harder now that it is in place But even if some of the better off households are excluded from the transfer scheme their number is unlikely to be large The success of the reform depends on the vast majority of the people feeling that they are not being cheated out of their fair share of the oil wealth To sum up the potential lessons overemphasis on rights may not always be the best political strategy for promoting basic income the compensatory nature of the transfers can help overcome objections rooted in the principle of reciprocity piggybacking on a larger issue may open up fruitful opportunities for the promotion of basic income one can conceivably stumble on a basic income under certain circumstances Iran s model of generating resources for a basic income is potentially applicable in many other countries as well even those that may not have fuel resources of their own or subsidized fuel the Alaska model of dividend payment may have greater long term sustainability there is normally a trade off between universality and transfer amount in the context of a developing country universal entitlement need not mean universal payment if the better off can be induced to forego their entitlement voluntarily cash transfers once in place can develop a large constituency behind them for both economic and political reasons and public support of cash transfers could be strengthened if they also addressed widely acknowledged problems for example irrational consumption patterns For more on the subject see Hamid Tabatabai The Basic Income Road to

  • IRAN: Economic reforms usher in a de facto basic income | BIEN
    better job of targeting than its last attempt The rights based underpinnings of the Basic Income have no place in the current Iranian discourse on cash grants The payments are not regarded as income to which the citizens are entitled by right but as another type of subsidy to compensate for the loss of price subsidies though whether this makes any practical difference is an interesting question Neither do they come anywhere close to a decent subsistence income the US 200 of a family of five per month is about two thirds of the monthly minimum wage They also exclude more than two million Afghan and Iraqi refugees who have been living in Iran for years sometimes decades and will now have to bear the full brunt of price hikes And last but not least once price rises go into effect in the days ahead and if inflation gets out of hand due to mismanagement there is genuine fear that the whole edifice might come crashing down On the other hand it might be argued that the hardest obstacles towards a national Basic Income have already been overcome The programme is enshrined in law The payments are universal except for those rich enough to forfeit their right by simply not signing up Funding is assured and looks destined to continue in the medium term And if the reforms succeed even partially in achieving their stated objectives of rationalising consumption patterns boosting investment and efficiency redistributing incomes in favour of the have nots and reducing poverty their future should be fairly secure The continuation of the programme will also allow its shortcomings to be identified and put right particularly if this enormously important shift in social policy is subjected to rigorous comprehensive and continuing impact evaluation as it unfolds and progresses in the months and years ahead The replacement of price subsidies by a cash transfer system of unprecedented scope and scale has placed Iran in the forefront of all countries in advancing towards a nationwide Basic Income The fact that such a transition takes place first in a developing Middle Eastern Islamic state not in a developed country in Northern Europe as many had presumed underlines the relevance of the concept of Basic Income for a broad range of countries The specificities of the Iranian experience should of course not be ignored It is in large part the combined availability of domestic fuel resources and an exceptionally distorted pricing policy that has made it possible indeed almost inevitable for a de facto Basic Income to emerge as part of the solution But the model may still have some relevance for other countries in particular mineral producing nations There may also be scope in some countries with large subsidy bills to explore the feasibility and wisdom of rerouting subsidies to fund a Basic Income without additional taxation Iran s experience may hold some lessons of wider applicability if they are properly drawn and are convincing For more on the subject see
