When it comes to Universal Basic Income, the question isn’t whether there is going to be one, but when it’ll be introduced
Automation is already replacing workers in the most popular industries like shipping, retail and manufacturing, but UBI would still be necessary without automation.
Maybe doesn’t everyone need a “job”, well, at least not in a way that most people have in mind, some people are more creating than others, some people are more exact in what they’re doing.
In a few words, everybody is different, therefore we shouldn’t treat everyone the same, like the educational system and in general as society we’re doing, there is a place for everyone in this world.
A Universal Basic Income would provide everyone true individual freedom, that means a job that he likes, and enough free time to find it, while we comply with the human rights of UN.
Economists and experts are saying that a universal basic income (UBI) would boost the US economy by a staggering of 2.5 trillion dollars, assuming that every US citizen receives $1.000 a month.
A study carried out by the Roosevelt Institute has concluded that implementing a UBI in the U.S. could have a positive effect on the nation’s economy.
This is the perfect time for a UBI to be introduced in USA and Europe, while the rest of the world will eventually follow their bright example, hopefully there will be politicians ready to be elected in both USA and the EU.
