@openscience I voted "Bad Idea". I grew up in easter Europe in communism. Basically, what does UBI mean that everyone will have the "same nothing" - where is the motivation for the people they don't want to contribute to society if they will be receiving regular income? Don't bring socialism and communism back - it's a trap!
@oldsoldier @openscience I don't see this doing any good, aside from causing inflation, less people will feel the need to work and this “could" lead to a reduction of goods and services available. As much of a bad rap capitalism gets, it does work and generally provides incentives for people to provide goods and services to others. Some would provide for others just out of their good will, but many others wouldn't care less. Capitalism with proper regulation is the best solution
Personally I think it will be crucial eventually when automation/robotics takes over more and more jobs. In 10-15 years the driver will probably not be needed anymore as cars and trucks will drive themselves.
Money will flow even more to the few in the future... and this has to be redistributed.
