I did an interview with the Times of India recently about unconditional basic income and it was just published over the weekend. I cover UBI’s history, key findings, why universality is a key feature, and how it functions like a vaccine via prevention.https://t.co/UsDZOlRI27

#Running4Mayor: „During the race for president, @AndrewYang became best known for his universal basic income proposal to give every American $1,000 a month. – Yang says he will propose a similar plan for New Yorkers – an idea which could shake up the race.“https://t.co/DtqBkTVgxq

Close schools. National lockdown. Universal Basic Income until the virus is in retreat. Massive subsidies and stakes to keep business afloat. National mobilisation to stop NHS being overwhelmed – sounds radical now. Won’t by mid-Jan.

Mason hatte schon im vergangenen Sommer in einem Beitrag für den New Statesman in diese Richtung argumentiert:
„As I argued in Postcapitalism: A Guide to Our Future, UBI is not the panacea that its most ardent activists believe it is. It should be conceived not as an anti-crisis measure, nor as a substitute benefit system, but as a one-time and temporary measure to promote the rapid automation of society, and the reduction of necessary work time.“
…eine Veröffentlichung des European Environmental Bureau, die sich auch mit einem Universal Basic Income beschäftigt (ab S. 48).
„A basic income is also a recognition of our collective social and ecological inheritance, the true source of wealth,“ writes economist Guy Standing. In an article featured on @BuildResilience, Standing makes a nuanced and compelling case for #UBI. https://t.co/bVHxYyPOxC

The only reason the idea of UBI has ever been divisive is because some people believe that other people should be subordinate to them, and many people agree with them in hopes of gaining that power for themselves. UBI is freedom from domination, via unconditional power to say no. https://t.co/VrGP591wna pic.twitter.com/nNpP2uTXtg
