No. This is not welfare. It’s universal. We are the richest, most abundant country in the history of the world, and we can easily afford $1,000/month per person.
What the UBI does:
- Grows the economy.
- Enables people to afford their basic needs.
- Gets people’s heads above water.
- Helps people to invest and save for the future.
- Creates 4.5 million new jobs because people would have more money to spend in the economy.
It’s like a permanent stimulus for the economy.
59% of Americans can’t pay a $500 bill.
Would it make inflation go up? There would be some slight inflation. But technology makes things a lot cheaper over time. Only healthcare, education, and housing have been increasing in price, and that’s already been happening even without a UBI.
