What are some of the biggest problems with a guaranteed annual income? | Arguments for Basic Income | Scoop.it
Maybe this isn’t the biggest problem, but it’s been my worry as of late.  Must a guaranteed income truly be unconditional?  Might there be circumstances when we would want to pay some individuals more than others?
