Will UBI be used as neetbucks?

Neetbucks is money for people who have basically dropped out of society. Young people who are NEET are “Not in Education, Employment or Training.” It’s been a big thing in Europe for a while.

The concern that people have is that with the UBI or Freedom Dividend, young people can afford to intentionally drop out of society and play video games all day.

The causes for this phenomenon are largely structural, societal, and economic. Andrew Yang’s Modern Time Banking policy addresses this. There are a lot of good things that people can do with their time, and we need a structure and system that makes it easy and fun for people to find these opportunities.
