UBI … Universal Basic Income … rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic.
With no other changes made to the capitalist, market-driven economy in which it is implemented all that will happen is either:
1. inflation will rise to compensate
2. employers will reduce salaries by an amount equal to the UBI
3. both of the above
It’s a lovely idea from people with their hearts in the right place and at least enough wit to recognise that the current system is broken … but not enough to realise that a rose by any other name will smell as sweet.
