Universal Basic Income – Why it Would or Wouldn’t Work

Universal Basic Income – Why it Would or Wouldn’t Work

The idea of Universal Basic Income continues to get the attention of policymakers and the general public. It’s impossible to ignore the benefits, as well as the flaws of the basic income theory which was first suggested by Sir Thomas Mor in the book ‘Utopia’, and was never implemented in a society, or at least not in an organized/governmental society. Basic Income economy – How does it work?

The primary rule of the economic system is to keep the economy’s wheels turning, meaning, those who are in charge must find ways to stimulate the economic system and economic […]

The rise of N-UBIs (non-universal basic incomes) and a national-populist ‘commons’ by Angela Mitropoulos (@Mitropoulos_A) on May 19, 2019

The rise of N-UBIs (non-universal basic incomes) and a national-populist ‘commons’ by Angela Mitropoulos (@Mitropoulos_A) on May 19, 2019

The idea of a universal basic income has become a staple of contemporary political discourse. It calls out in circumstances of uncertainty—even as the history of basic incomes has been somewhat obscured in the process, and the patterning and different kinds of uncertainty (precarious work, poverty, ‘cultural anxiety,’ risk, climate change) have often been conflated and attached to widely divergent politics. Yet few, if any, proposals put forward under the heading of a UBI are in fact either universal or as unconditional as might be supposed (or suggested by the label)—as with Andrew Yang’s proposal for a “freedom dividend” […]

The $3.8 trillion question

Universal basic income, rolled out across the U.S., would cost $3.8 trillion annually, or 21% of the nation’s gross domestic product, if every American citizen were to receive $12,000 a year (the current threshold for poverty), according to a July 2018 paper, " Primer on Universal Basic Income ," by Ray Dalio, co-chair of American investment-management firm Bridgewater Associates.

How to pay for all of that? Proponents of basic income have offered numerous ideas: a progressive income tax or a wealth tax; a carbon tax; or, as is done in Alaska, dividend distribution from the sale of natural resources.

Labour’s basic income plan for all could cost over £100 billion extra

LABOUR’S basic income plan for all could cost over £100billion extra, it was claimed last night.

Under Jeremy Corbyn , adults — in work or not — would get free cash handouts, with means-tested benefits axed. AFP or licensors Jeremy Corbyn’s free cash handouts could cost us over £100billion extra in welfare But if set at about £70 a week nationwide it would cost £288billion a year — up from £182billion on welfare now, Bath University’s Dr Luke Martinelli said.

Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd said some benefit claimants would be worse off.A low-income three-child family would get £8,500 less […]

An industrial policy for good jobs

By Dani Rodrik and Charles F. Sabel

CAMBRIDGE — In developed and developing countries alike, a combination of technological and economic forces has created a segment of advanced production, concentrated in metropolitan areas, that now coexists with a mass of relatively less productive activities and communities. This productive dualism lies behind many contemporary ills: rising inequality and exclusion, loss of trust in governing elites and growing electoral support for authoritarian populists. But much of the policy discussion today focuses on solutions that miss the true source of the problem.

For example, redistribution through taxes and fiscal transfers accepts the productive […]

Stockton’s Universal Basic Income experiment is doomed to fail. Here’s why

Stockton’s Universal Basic Income experiment is doomed to fail. Here’s why

In this Feb. 29, 2012, file photo, a Stockton city worker walks away from city hall in Stockton, Calif. Stockton, a Northern California city, plans to give several dozen families $500 a month for a year as part of a program to study the economic and social impacts of giving people a basic income. What if we could solve poverty by just giving people money? It sounds too good to be true, which it is. But that hasn’t stopped a growing number of people from advocating for “Universal Basic Income,” or UBI.

UBI proposals come in different shapes and sizes, […]

Meet the secret ‘ghost workers’ paid to keep the internet safe

Enlarge Image Ghost workers are meant to make consumers believe in the autonomous intelligence of robots, when really there’s a human workforce behind the cogs and gears. Kala, a 43-year-old mother of two, sits alone at her home office, in the corner of a tiny bedroom, and studies her laptop screen, trying to determine if what she’s reading is offensive.

Her part-time job, which she picked up as a way to feel “fruitful” between making meals and helping her kids with their homework, involves “content moderation.” As an independent contractor for UHRS, an outsourcing company run by Microsoft, she spends […]
