Academic Literature Archives Jurgen De Wispelaere, “The Struggle for Strategy: On the Politics of the Basic Income Proposal” ABSTRACT: Policy interest in the basic income (BI) proposal is booming, but remarkably little attention is spent on systematically examining political strategies to build robust enabling coalitions in favour of BI. This paper reviews two thorny problems that affect the coalition-building efforts of BI advocates.

Basic income guarantee An unconditional basic income (also called basic income, basic income guarantee, universal basic income, universal demogrant,[1] or citizen’s income) is a proposed system[2] of social security in which all citizens or residents of a country regularly receive an unconditional sum of money, either from a government or some other public institution, in addition to any income received from elsewhere. A basic income is typically intended to be only enough for a person to survive on, so as to encourage people to engage in economic activity. A basic income of any amount less than the social minimum is sometimes referred to as a 'partial basic income'. On the other hand, it should be high enough so as to facilitate any socially useful activity someone could not afford to engage in if dependent on working for money to earn a living.

Equality of outcome 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.[2] It describes a state in which people have approximately the same material wealth or in which the general economic conditions of their lives are similar. Achieving equal results generally entails reducing or eliminating material inequalities between individuals or households in a society, and usually involves a transfer of income or wealth from wealthier to poorer individuals, or adopting other measures to promote equality of condition. A related way of defining equality of outcome is to think of it as "equality in the central and valuable things in life. Comparisons with related concepts[edit] Equality of outcome is often compared to related concepts of equality, particularly with equality of opportunity.

A Basic Income for All? by Cameron Abadi, City Journal Spring 20 German free marketeers turn to an innovative idea. Europeans may find it impossible to imagine dismantling their welfare states, but they are increasingly confronting the possibility that a shake-up is overdue. For some countries, like Greece and Spain, fiscal woes are forcing the issue. (2006) In Our Hands: A Plan to Replace the Welfare State. Charles Murray "America's population is wealthier than any in history. Every year, the American government redistributes more than a trillion dollars of wealth to provide for retirement, health care, and the alleviation of poverty. We still have millions of people without comfortable retirements, without adequate health care, and living in poverty.

Basic Income, a new human right IEET Contributor, B. Abbott on Structural Unemployment Sign the petition here: Follow us on facebook: Basic Income should be universal, individual, unconditional and high enough to ensure a dignified existence and participation in society. This new fundamental right for humanity, not only would eradicate misery, it is also a way to develop non-market oriented work: such as artists, parents and volunteers. But it's also an economic measure!

(2013) Money for everyone: Why we need a citizen's income. Malcolm Torry Malcolm Torry delivers a blockbuster argument in favour of a Citizen's Income to wholly or partially replace current benefits. His book is well-researched, well-informed, well-written, and is articulate and readable. His main argument is that, given widespread acceptance of a benefits scheme of some sort, then a Citizen's Income is by far the best option. Specifically it avoids the disincentives of very high marginal deduction rates of current benefits which create the familiar unemployment and poverty traps. According to Torry, a Citizen's Income would incentivise employment, training, new business formation, women's participation rates, and can even reduce teenage pregnancy in Namibia.
