An excellent, brief, informative overview of five different models of universal basic income, from Make Wealth History

    I grow more in favor of this kind of thinking of evening the game of income distribution for all every day. Then I watch an athlete or celebrity get paid an outragous sum of money for a minimal contribution to society that day.

      I know what you mean. I really get annoyed at what some CEOs make, and their detrimental contribution to society. Star athletes are certainly overpaid, but at least they work out every day and have the courage to risk injuries. 🙂

    Interesting, JoAnn. I had no idea that there were so many variations of the same concept. Of special interest is the “Participation Income.” In order to qualify, we “would need to be making some kind of social contribution. That may be caring for someone, volunteering, or you could be in education, so it’s fairly broad.” I wonder if “motherhood” would be considered a social contribution.

      🙂 Motherhood better be, for any stay-at-home parent, man or woman!
