My intention in sending you this article is to spark your own ideas on the subject. The author seems unaware that there have already been several experiments in Universal Basic Income -- many back in the 1970s. I like that he includes worker-owned businesses. I think it needs some fleshing out -- but, as long as our government is against helping anyone but the rich, none of this, no matter how good an idea, can happen in real life.
