Basic income

Basic income
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.[citation needed] Basic income systems financed on returns to publicly owned enterprises are major components in many proposals for market socialism.

FairTax Legislative overview and history[edit] Linder first introduced the Fair Tax Act (H.R. 2525) on July 14, 1999 to the 106th United States Congress and a substantially similar bill has been reintroduced in each subsequent session of Congress. The bill attracted a total of 56 House and Senate cosponsors in the 108th Congress, 61 in the 109th, 76 in the 110th, 70 in the 111th, 78 in the 112th, and 81 in the 113th (H.R. 25/S. 122). To become law, the bill will need to be included in a final version of tax legislation from the U.S. Tax rate[edit] The sales tax rate, as defined in the legislation for the first year, is 23% of the total payment including the tax ($23 of every $100 spent in total—calculated similar to income taxes). Sales tax rate[edit] Effective tax rate[edit] A household's effective tax rate on consumption would vary with the annual expenditures on taxable items and the fixed monthly tax rebate.

Allocation universelle Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le revenu de base est un revenu versé par une communauté politique à tous ses membres, sur une base individuelle, sans conditions de ressources ni obligation de travail, selon la définition du Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN)[1].

UPDATED: Ron Van Dyke: I Finally Met with Mr. Sino of SWISSINDO w/a Comment from Mel Ve Ron Van Dyke: I Finally Met with Mr. Sino of SWISSINDO January 25, 2014 I found this update from Ron to be VERY interesting. As you all may have noticed I haven't mentioned or published anything about SWISSINDO since their big unveiling earlier last year. There was just too much hype and speculation being tossed around, with a range of contradictory stories, I didn't want to touch it until there was something more "concrete." My initial exposure to SWISSINDO came from Captain Deryl Zeleny, someone I consider a good friend who I have a great deal of respect for. This all brought me to yesterday when I watched this update by Ron.

Participatory Budgeting in New York City | REAL MONEY. REAL PROJECTS. REAL POWER. Confessions of A Job Destroyer - Practical Elegance One of the most unfunny ironies of the rhetoric surrounding “job creators” in contemporary American politics is that most of the jobs being created (or at least, those with the greatest demand) are in the tech sector. Jobs like mine. Jobs that automate processes that used to be performed by people. So I’ll come out and say it: I’m not a job creator (which is, I suppose, why the Republicans aren’t too interested in cutting my taxes). I’m a job destroyer. We (programmers) all are, on some level or another; we’re taking mundane repetitive tasks and automating them with code. Marc Andreessen famously explained ‘Why Software Is Eating The World’ in the WSJ a couple of years ago. I’m not just an old-fashioned Job Destroyer, replacing secretaries and mid-level bureaucracy with CRM and accounting suites. With the exception of low-paying service jobs, most of the jobs we’re going to create in the coming years will be Job Destroyer jobs. Sure, we can’t destroy all the non-Job Destroyer jobs… yet.

Le produit d'appel, qui fait son bien dangereux petit effet, le revenu citoyen fait penser au revenu d'existence... mais il n'en est rien.

Absolument rien ! Certains supposent une mesure de gauche par un homme de droite, encore une fois... il n'en est rien. Il est d’autant plus dommageable aux partis de gauche l’absence de communication massive sur ce modèle durant les 10 dernières années qui leur aurait permis de se positionner fortement en rupture et de préserver les citoyens français.

The lawsuit that could end the gangster rule of Western civilization The lawsuit that could end the gangster rule of Western civilization November 24th, 2011 A lawsuit was filed today (November 23rd US time) that could end the secret government that has ruled Western civilization for at least the past 300 years. The lawsuit claims that close to $1 trillion was stolen by, among others, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and the UN, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and the Italian government, Giancarlo Bruno and the Davos World Economic forum and others believed to include many of the owners of the US Federal Reserve Board. The lawsuit was filed in New York by Neil Keenan, acting as representative of the Dragon family, a reclusive group of wealthy Asian families. The ultimate defendants in this legal action are believed to be the same cabal behind the assassination of US President John F. Dal Bosco subsequently absconded with the bonds and was followed 24-hours a day by various intelligence service agents to see what he would do with them. 1.

In Quebec, labour-sponsored "Solidarity Funds" are generating jobs MONTREAL - The Solidarity Fund is a financial innovation in North America, and is one of few similar institutions in the world (Note 1). Created in 1983 by the Quebec Federation of Labour, the Fund was born into a period of deep recession in Quebec and Canada. "Full employment was a highly attractive prospect at the time," affirms Daoust. From the start, realities had to be tackled. The Fund seeks profitability, but it is considered first and foremost a "capital for development" fund, financial output representing only one part of the equation. In 2003, the Solidarity Fund had over half a million shareholders. As a result, workers have a role beyond the execution of tasks. Beyond the four initial guiding principles, the Solidarity Fund knew it had to develop other characteristics over its 20 year history - the reason for its success today. The Responsables Locaux (Local Representatives) hold great pride in the Fund. The success of the Solidarity Fund is not limited to Quebec.

Docs Should Say No to ADHD Meds for 'Focus,' says Neurology Group So-called neuroenhancement - giving ADHD medication to kids and adults who don't have the condition so they can focus better - is a trend that the American Academy of Neurology wants doctors to stop in its tracks. By Amir Khan, Everyday Health Staff Writer WEDNESDAY, March 13, 2013 — Doctors need to reconsider prescribing memory- and focus-enhancing ADHD drugs to healthy children and teens, the American Academy of Neurology said in a position statement in the journal Neurology. The statement addresses the growing trend of taking ADHD medication, such as Adderall or Ritalin, as a study aid – something the AAN says poses not only health risks for patients, but ethical risks for doctors. ADHD drugs help alleviate symptoms in people with ADHD, but more and more healthy people are using the drugs to help their school or work performance, according to the report. There are rare cases when prescribing ADHD drugs for neuroenhancement would be okay, said Dr. ADHD-Drug Use – A Growing Problem

Crédit social Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le crédit social est une idéologie économique et un mouvement social qui est apparu au début des années 1920. À l'origine, c'était une théorie économique développée par l'ingénieur écossais Clifford Hugh Douglas. Chaque citoyen reçoit chaque année un total de monnaie créée proportionnel à la croissance des biens et services, et inversement proportionnel au nombre de citoyens de la zone monétaire. Le nom « crédit social » dérive de son désir de faire que le but du système monétaire (« crédit ») soit l'amélioration de la société (« social »). Le crédit social est aussi appelé dividende universel, dividende social ou, de façon sans doute plus adaptée, dividende monétaire. Théorie[modifier | modifier le code] C. Le théorème A+B[modifier | modifier le code] Pour qu'un tel système soit soutenable, Douglas affirmait qu'une ou plusieurs des situations suivantes devait se produire : La solution du crédit social[modifier | modifier le code] Soient :
