  • An American basic income: how do we get there?
    a basic income and the program impact could be assessed by comparing to non participating families In fact an experiment similar to this was previously run in the US in the 60s and 70s in various locations across the country New Jersey cities rural Iowa and North Carolina Gary Indiana and Seattle and Denver randomly selected families were provided with a negative income tax which gave substantial direct monetary support to those with low incomes The study showed some initial promising results with increased school attendance rates and only a modest reduction in labor rates Randomized trials are now being set up abroad in Finland to evaluate the effect of a universal basic income there If more experiments were conducted in the United States it could provide a much clearer picture of the full impact of enacting basic income here Although labeled as the second step on the path implementing prototypes could actually happen in parallel to raising awareness amongst the public These efforts could even be complementary the success of prototype programs would increase visibility and support for basic income And in turn greater support would make additional prototypes easier to enact We need some very concrete examples of how basic income can work though before we ll be ready for final step Step 3 Wait for Lightning to Strike Let s say we ve reached a point where most people know about and support basic income and there are prototype programs showing it working Even then given the current level of dysfunction in Washington DC it would still be extremely difficult to enact a federal version That s why the third step to implement an American basic income is to wait for the right moment In her book The Shock Doctrine Naomi Klein describes how in times of crisis people may be willing to accept big changes that normally would seem far too radical While Klein s focus is on the enactment of exploitative corporate policies the same principle can apply to positive changes If automation continues to displace jobs as predicted in the coming years there will be moments of extreme disruption to our economy Grocery stores will lay off big parts of their workforce as cheap automated stocking and checkout services become available More automated restaurants like Eatsa will appear which employ fewer service staff Millions of jobs will be lost in the transportation industry to self driving vehicles As the magnitude of these disruptions becomes apparent people will be knocked out of their normal routine and be willing to embrace a big change At that moment if we have public awareness and support and if we ve demonstrated the program s effectiveness people across the country can rally behind a clarion call to push past the gridlock in Washington and we will have a real chance to enact an American basic income What s Next The steps laid out above are not theoretical many of us are already working to achieve them Discussion groups and
