Free Money: My Thoughts on Universal Basic Income

Comments

The Everyday Liberal Show says:

A UBI does not really cost $3 trillion to do. The real cost is in the NET cost. and that would end up being about $600 Billion a year.

And since poverty's expensive symptoms cost the USA economy about 3.8% (which is ~$730 Billion a year), if we did a UBI we would end up saving money. Not to mention the huge boost in economic growth as the icing on the cake.
