Money For All

Universal Basic Income. On this Independence Day week, a topic being discussed by both the left and the right. Considered as far back as Thomas Paine. And Karl Marx. Of course. Guaranteed monthly income for everyone paid by governments across the Globe. A good idea says Richard Branson as well as many Silicon Valley CEO’s. A buffer afforded to workers and unemployed alike. As Artificial Intelligence and Automation replace manual and cognitive tasks. But. Will it work? Studies say yes. Common sense says no. Ask the Dutch.

Either way, Trump will be the last leader to get away with promising the return of manufacturing jobs. So. Something’s gotta be done.
