Sooo…. How are you going to pay for this?
Jim Roye

Hi Jim- Thanks for your response! I agree that getting the government to pay for such an ordeal is infeasible. I know that I did fall pretty hard into the “UBI will solve everything!” argument in this essay, but my previous essays are more about how our present situation (means-tested, conditional welfare) is unsustainable.

I checked out your own proposals regarding wealth investment, and I do think that, or a national dividend, or something similar, is the right course of action. It’s universal and unconditional, which I think are the fundamental parts to whatever solution we wind up with.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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