Features of Universal Basic Income

We all at one point of time in our lives think that it will be delightful if we get salary or money sitting at home doing nothing, while this fantasy can be true if the government of the country decides to have a universal basic income for citizens of the country. Universal basic income in simple words refers to that rule in which all citizens of the nation get periodic income in the form of cash irrespective of their caste, employment, income status and so on. In order to have more idea about this concept, one should look at […]

Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg are in favor of Universal Basic Income. Does a 2020 U.S. presidential candidate want to give everyone $1,000 a month?

UBI is an immature policy that has yet to really work anywhere it has been tried. Ideally, a successful income policy will provide subsistence to every member of the society….Also, universal means everyone, regardless of whether they need it or not. A universally assured stipend to every citizen would do a way with A LOT of current programs and costs. No need for a minimum wage. No need for social security. No need to for unions or any other fair wage or workplace safety laws. No need to live in a home where you are being abused…or go to […]

Jan 16 – Will You Vote for Universal Basic Income in 2020 Election? (w/Andrew Yang)

all this talk about people using EBT to buy soda and chips

In India we have got hold of wrong end of the stick

In India we have got hold of wrong end of the stick

The MGNREGS programme has evolved over the last two years to increase its focus on creation of durable assets, among other things. Central government is likely to end up reducing real incomes of supposed beneficiaries by cutting down on crucial expenditures like that on employment guarantee and food security.

In India, we tend to catch up with the latest global policy fashions — but a little late, and often in distorted ways.

Take the idea of the universal basic income (UBI). Most advocates of basic income in the advanced countries do not see this as in any way a substitute […]

Universal Basic Income: A worthwhile experiment

Universal Basic Income: A worthwhile experiment

The government can choose to pay a certain amount, which can be calculated as the poverty line threshold multiplied by the number of people in a household and then scaled up for a month. But in a country like India, the task is different in scope because the number of people living below the poverty line is quite high and can range from 20-50 per cent depending on how the concept is defined.

Universal basic income is a fairly straightforward concept where every individual or family, as the case may be, receives a transfer of income from the government […]

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ is actually an old socialist plan from Canada

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 'Green New Deal' is actually an old socialist plan from Canada

What is the left not telling you about the ‘Green New Deal’? Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., “Green New Deal” is the most radical and destructive policy proposal offered by a member of Congress in decades. Not only would it destroy roughly 3.4 million jobs related to the fossil fuel industry by eliminating nearly all fossil fuel use by 2030, it would also require “upgrades” to every home and business building in the country and the creation of single-payer health care , a “basic income” program, and a federal jobs guarantee, among many other left-wing policies.

With the backing of Ocasio-Cortez, […]
