Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg Supports Universal Basic Income.
In its basic form, universal basic income means “everyone gets a paycheck, whether they have a job or not.”
Many expect even more. They want a guaranteed “living wage”.
Such schemes cannot possibly work. But that does not stop fools from trying.
For example, Finland is giving out a guaranteed monthly income of nearly $600 to 2,000 citizens.
Canada’s province of Ontario, which includes Toronto, started a pilot program in April that provides 4,000 citizens with an unconditional income of about $12,600 a year. Applicants must be between ages 18 and 64 and living on a limited income.
Those studies cannot prove anything, no matter what the results.
