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.

Basic Income Is Just What the Doctor Ordered

Basic Income Is Just What the Doctor Ordered | Reflecting on Basic Income | Scoop.it
What makes people sick? Infectious agents like bacteria and viruses and personal factors like smoking, eating poorly and living a sedentary lifestyle. But none of these compares to the way that poverty makes us sick. Prescribing medications and lifestyle changes for our patients who suffer from income deficiency isn't enough; we need to start prescribing healthy incomes. The upstream factors that affect health -- such as income, education, employment, housing, and food security -- have a far greater impact on whether we will be ill or well. Of these, income has the most powerful influence, as it shapes access to the other health determinants.

The end of Jobs is Near and Capitalism as we Know It is Over | Hacked

The end of Jobs is Near and Capitalism as we Know It is Over | Hacked | Reflecting on Basic Income | Scoop.it
More and more news headlines and opinion pieces predict the end of jobs and the end of capitalism as we know it. The logic is simple: technology destroys more jobs than it creates. Automation is rapidly becoming cheaper and better than the labor of both blue and white collar workers, which therefore will be replaced by industrial robots and computer programs. The number of new jobs that are created to develop new technologies is nowhere near the number of workers that the new technologies will make unemployable. For some time, skilled workers in sectors that require creativity and a personal …
