La crise ... des ânes Un homme portant cravate se présenta un jour dans un village. Monté sur une caisse, il cria à qui voulait l’entendre qu’il achèterait cash 100 euros l’unité tous les ânes qu’on lui proposerait. Les paysans le trouvaient bien un peu étrange, mais son prix était très intéressant et ceux qui topaient avec lui repartaient le portefeuille rebondi, la mine réjouie.

Beyond social cleavages, corporations and doctrines, we, the signatories of the present call, express our will to contribute to a realistic and constructive transformation of our society: that of life income.

Basic income or citizen’s income is a proposed system [ 1 ] of social security that regularly provides each citizen with a sum of money unconditionally. In contrast to income redistribution between nations themselves, the phrase basic income defines payments to individuals rather than households, [ 2 ] groups, or nations, in order to provide for individual basic human needs. Except for citizenship , a basic income is entirely unconditional. Furthermore, there is no means test or impact as a result of other income; the richest as well as the poorest citizens would receive it. Basic income is related to the concept of a social dividend , and is one of the proposed means for distributing the surplus value or economic profits created by socially owned enterprises in a hypothetical socialist economy .
