What are your thoughts on universal basic income?
1. It is possible now.
UBI is possible. Especially with redistribution of tech wealth and other extremes of wealth.
2. Just because it is possible, doesn't mean it's good.
We got a brief glimpse of the effects of people not working during the pandemic and even now there are on-going staff shortages due to a variety of factors. We all want goods and services that people have to work in to provide.
3. Work gives us much more than just a paycheck.
We meet friends at work. Our workday gives us structure and in some cases meaning. Work gives us a reason to get up and get going each day.
