What are your thoughts on universal basic income?
This could be 5 for and 5 against or any other format that you want. Now that AI is mainstream UBI seems to be up for discussion again: How will it get paid for? Who will benefit? Is it a good idea? How should it work?
1. It will get paid for by taxes
2. No one will benefit
3. UBI is a good idea because it takes care of people who are unemployable due to AI
4. The best way to implement UBI is to give everyone $1,000 a month and then tax that back at, say, 50%
So if you get $1,000 you pay $500 in taxes and have $500 left over
That's $500 a month for the rest of your life if you need it
And that's how we fund UBI
