Is Basic Income Basically Theft?
Neil Wilson

“The Job Guarantee solves this by creating things to do.”

things to do are always there. JG just matches labor up with them.

BIG advocates on the one hand, exhibit a sort of blindness of potential useful work to do. This is possibly a side effect of long-term unemployment. They like to re bring up the automation argument with the addendum: “this time it’s different”, and “AI will be able to replace any sort of job” (since first time around it did not hold up). However then on the other hand they talk about all the creative endeavors people would take up on their own accord.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
