Nature Identification Thread #16- Now Paying out Steem Basic Income Memberships to Participants!

It’s time for the weekly nature identification thread! Post pictures of plants, animals, rocks, or other cool stuff that you’ve photographed but can’t identify, and I, along with anyone else who would like to help, will try and help you identify it. I’ll be making some changes to it- most notably, I’ll be using the SBD proceeds from this post to give out @steembasicincome memberships to people who post stuff to be identified or help me identify photos. The northern short-tailed shrew ( Blarina brevicuada ) isn’t much to look at, but it’s one of the most fascinating creatures […]

By Polly Cleveland

At a coffee break between sessions at the annual History of Economics Society meeting, I chatted with D___, a tall, blond young woman, a professor of political science at a German university. On hearing that I work on inequality, she immediately challenged me.

D: “I don’t believe in equality. Inequality is just a statistic, a side effect. What’s relevant is how people actually live. What matters are policies to improve citizen’s wellbeing, like health or education, not policies to reduce inequality. P: But aren’t those statistics useful in identifying those societies that are or are not doing […]

Basic income could work — if it’s done Canada-style

Basic income could work — if it's done Canada-style

Andrew Harnik/AP Basic income features in another way for various individuals — for some it is gasoline for cultural improvement, for others it is a meals subsidy or an academic grant, and for others it is a small-business booster.

About four,000 individuals in Ontario , Canada are getting month-to-month stipends to spice up them to at the least 75% of the poverty line .

The three-year trial funded by the provincial authorities is among the world’s largest checks of a assured primary revenue. Though it serves for instance for the US, skeptics say this it would […]

MY favourite contemporary economist is the former Newsnight editor Paul Mason. In his recent publication PostCapitalism, Mason provides a compelling critique of the current capitalist system, as well as sensing the direction of travel of the modern global economy. His hypothesis is that the current metric of economic success – growth, spending, consumerism and accumulation of debt – is nearing the end of its life cycle and something altogether […]

From Germany to America: A Dialog on Inequality

Basic Income is an Inherently Conservative Solution

Basic Income is an Inherently Conservative Solution

Basic income is a hard concept for denizens of our ideologically-charged age to grasp because it is a government benefit that is inherently conservative in nature.

A basic income is a flat-cash payment made to all or most members of society to support their lifestyles. That sounds like socialism to most people because it involves a government payment.

A basic income is conservative because its goal is to shore up traditional institutions and society instead of disrupting or undermining the established order. That runs counter to most welfare schemes which are progressive in nature. Those schemes are designed to disrupt society […]

[JFL] “Fucking capitalism is rigged, im owed basic income!! Incels want a chance in dating? Entitled mysogynist XDDD”

A common motif of the (Tempel ov Blood) Order of the 9 Angles is the subversion and twisting of truth , as seen by the common eye, but this is far from the case. To the eyes of the beholder, one may believe that we act out of sheer conniving and sinister evil, and sure, we like to accredit ourselves as such , and to those who are politically fuelled with in-native right-wing and naive ideas of a global white revolution, Ethno-state, and the saving of the so-called “ Western Civilisation “, outright accuse us of being Hebrew Israelites […]
