Radical Universal Basic Income: Beyond Right Wing Liberal Proposals

Recently, universal basic income has been floated by Silicon Valley capitalists as a solution to the growing inequality in the United States.

His proposal is to keep social programs in place (rather than gut them) while giving people more per year to live on. As an economist he has credibility in actually spelling out how all this would be paid for.
