    A basic income is an income unconditionally granted to all on an individual basis, without means test or work requirement. It is a form of minimum income guarantee that differs from those that now exist in various European countries in three important ways:

    • it is being paid to individuals rather than households;
    • it is paid irrespective of any income from other sources;
    • it is paid without requiring the performance of any work or the willingness to accept a job if offered.

    I'm pretty sure @HAL is lobbying hard for this so he can get a raise on his welfare

    I guess that's fine to provide immediate relief in an economic crisis, but it's not self-sustaining. It's not like FDR's New Deal that also had the big industrial, infrastructure and energy projects to create the necessary economic surplus to pay for the social programs.

    No, no I haven't, and if I did, I'd punch him in the throat.
