Equality of outcome , equality of condition , or equality of results is a political concept which is central to some political ideologies and is used regularly in political discourse, often in contrast to the term equality of opportunity . [ 1 ] Although it is not always clearly defined, it usually describes a state in which people have approximately the same material wealth or, more generally, in which the general economic conditions of their lives are similar. Achieving this requires reducing or eliminating material inequalities between individuals or households in a society. This could involve a transfer of income and/or wealth from wealthier to poorer individuals, or adopting other institutions designed to promote equality of condition from the start.
There is another way.
To: Everyone :) We are at the crescendo of human history, and it is quite obvious that the narratives that have structured our society in the 20th century are no longer working in the 21st century.
We were talking not long ago about universal basic income policy, and there were a variety of opinions about the desirability, political sustainability and implications of such a policy. But, before arguing about those issues, it’s useful to consider whether a basic income is feasible at all and, if so, what kinds of tax policies, and adjustments to other welfare policies, would be required to support it. I’ve considered the relatively easy case of a guaranteed minimum income, rather than a universal basic income paid to everyone, as advocated by Philippe von Parijs and others.

Basic Income & Revenu Existence Pearltrees
With the launch of the european citizen’s initiative for unconditional basic income , the time has come for basic income supporters to take action for the one of the biggest battle of History: the battle for Human Rights, Dignity, Democracy, the Commons… All at once reunited in the demand for a basic income.
Here’s one of the big ideas we need to fight the power of the elite. By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian 2 nd April 2013 Most of the world’s people are decent, honest and kind.
E & M recently conducted a survey called "Social Justice in Europe - the Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) as a model of the future?"
A Basic Income for All Philippe Van Parijs Entering the new millennium, I submit for discussion a proposal for the improvement of the human condition: namely, that everyone should be paid a universal basic income (UBI), at a level sufficient for subsistence. In a world in which a child under five dies of malnutrition every two seconds, and close to a third of the planet’s population lives in a state of "extreme poverty" that often proves fatal, the global enactment of such a basic income proposal may seem wildly utopian. Readers may suspect it to be impossible even in the wealthiest of OECD nations. Yet, in those nations, productivity, wealth, and national incomes have advanced sufficiently far to support an adequate UBI.
“If we want to be realistic then we have to assume that the labor market will no longer be able to support social integration for everyone in society much longer.
Citizen's dividend or citizen's income is a proposed state policy based upon the principle that the natural world is the common property of all persons (see Georgism ). It is proposed that all citizens receive regular payments ( dividends ) from revenue raised by the state through leasing or selling natural resources for private use. In the United States , the idea can be traced back to Thomas Paine 's essay, Agrarian Justice , [ 1 ] which is also considered one of the earliest proposals for a social security system in the United States. Thomas Paine summarized his view by stating that "Men did not make the earth. It is the value of the improvements only, and not the earth itself, that is individual property. Every proprietor owes to the community a ground rent for the land which he holds."

The Alaska Permanent Fund is a constitutionally established permanent fund managed by a state-owned corporation, the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation (APFC). [ 1 ] The fund was established in Alaska in 1976 [ 2 ] by Article 9, Section 15 of the Alaska State Constitution [ 3 ] under Governor Jay Hammond . From February 1976 until April 1980, the Department of Revenue Treasury Division managed the state's Permanent Fund assets, until, in 1980, the Alaska State Legislature created the APFC. [ 4 ] Shortly after the oil from Alaska’s North Slope began flowing to market through the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System , the Permanent Fund was created by an amendment to the Alaska Constitution . It was designed to be an investment where at least 25% of the oil money would be put into a dedicated fund for future generations, who would no longer have oil as a resource. [ 5 ] This does not mean the fund is solely funded by oil revenue.
