Reflecting on Basic Income
Our current economic world order is dying. To make sure lots of people don;'t die along with it a basic income has become critical. Without basic income there won't be anything resembling "civilization" on this planet 50 years from now.

If everyone was given a Basic Income, it could cost less than the benefits system | Reflecting on Basic Income | Scoop.it
What would you do differently if you were guaranteed a minimum income every week, regardless of how you choose to spend your time? Spend more time caring for – or just with – your children? Learn a new skill? Start your own business? It seems like a bold suggestion, but a Basic Income is something that I’ve longed campaigned for. What is it? It’s an unconditional, non-withdrawable income payable to each individual. It’s not subject to means testing and there is no requirement to be working or actively seeking work.

Should the Government Pay Everyone a Basic Income? | Big Think

Should the Government Pay Everyone a Basic Income? | Big Think | Reflecting on Basic Income | Scoop.it

At the beginning of 2015, few people had even heard of the idea of a basic income. It wasn't a popular concept and few media outlets had mentioned it. By December, it was being discussed in hundreds of places, and several countries, including Finland andSwitzerland, were seriously considering implementing it.

 And see the whole list here.

The idea is simple. Instead of letting companies pay people paltry wages and then supporting those workers with government programs, the government institutes a floor for income, so no one can make less than enough to live on. If you can make more at your job, you're welcome to it, but no one would ever lack for money. It may sound like a revolutionary idea, but 2015 was the year basic income became a mainstream proposition, much to the delight of supporters who have long favored guaranteeing everyone's minimum welfare.

This is the finding of a new report, The Future of Jobs, published today by the World Economic Forum.
