This is an excellent podcast about #UniversalBasicIncome (and so much more), with Richard Feidler interviewing historian Rutger Bregman. The most inspiring chat I have listened to in a long while.

Universal Basic Income: The future?


http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/conversations/conversations-rutger-bregman-rpt/10053806

I have found Bregman to be quite optimistic, and that is a very refreshing thing. I'm looking forward to reading his book, Utopia for Realists.

A #universalbasicincome #experiment could be #coming to #Chicago



Chicago could become the largest city in US to test a universal basic income programme, if its local government takes up a new proposal to start handing out $500 a month to some households for free.

- #UniversalBasicIncome: #Machine #Slavery Or #Ultimate #Freedom?


Individual initiative and struggle determined the progress of our civilization for centuries on end.
Thus, is it fair to say that once the singularity is achieved individual struggle will find its place next to the theories of a flat Earth and the belief in an all mighty God?

- #Stockton, #California is the first #American #city to test a simple yet #unorthodox #experiment called #universalbasicincome.



It plans to deliver $500 a month in donated cash to perhaps 100 local families, no strings attached. The trial could start as soon as the fall and continue for about two years.
