Of course not! That's silly. You have to be in love first, before even thinking about marriage. Yet how much explaining goes on about Basic Income! Wait, don't we want people to fall in love with it? Imagine "falling in love" with marriage. Good luck with that! Basic Income is not an object of love. It is a process, a mechanism, a means to an end. We don't have feelings for Universal Basic Income (UBI), we have expectations. And what we expect is a fair, effective and reliable method that achieves results, the many outcomes we love.

UBI benefits:

  • Improves health, especially in young children

  • Eliminates economic insecurity

  • An answer to automation

  • Provides more opportunities for all

  • Fosters creativity

  • It's a human right

  • Reduces poverty (note that poverty is last on the list. This is where it should be)

UBI costs:
