Universal Basic Income — Dream or Nightmare?

A universal basic income is also called BUI, which is a government guarantee that each citizen receives a minimum income. The intention behind the BUI is to cover the basic cost of living, and its concept has regained popularity as a way to offset job losses caused by technology. Some people believe the BUI plan will cause problems since the citizens can rely on the benefit without work for a living. However, some others think that the structure of the U.S. economy will be dramatically changed because robotics will take away most people’s jobs in the nearly future; therefore, BUI is the only solution.

  1. UBI is one of __many__ social engineering instruments our free capitalism has established, exist today. Bottom up, trickle up, we decide vs Government decide, people vs socialist Government. The base starting at $1000 vs base $0. Dividend as citizen deserved vs a hand out, vs an entitlement. A subtle difference in English, a huge difference in economy and ideology. The more we think about this, the more we may favor UBI. That is why MATH to Make us American Think Harder …. We need to read harder, think harder, analyze harder, do not buy FAST advertisement, sweet marketing messages, THINK and LISTEN harder.
