Why I’m dedicating my year to Universal Basic Income

Dear Stefan, thank you for your noble efforts in spreading awareness of this movement. My question to you: How fruitftul has your effort been so far, in promoting this idea around you?

Things seem to advance slowly but surely. I have been researching food insecurity in Canada and to my surprise, Food Bank Canada is one major proponent for a Basic Income in Canada. I think we would drastically alter poverty with such a policy. I also noticed many people quick to make assumptions (including myself) about how such a policy would result in hyper-inflation; laziness and more governmental control. I think these need to be discussed carefully because they are genuine concerns.

I also recommend the following FAQ by Scott Santens. Cheers!
