Why free money beats bullshit jobs
« on: 29 Apr 2016, 07:33:55 »
While http://fusion.net/story/288907/why-free-money-beats-bullshit-jobs/ isn't about an RBE, it is about one step that could be taken to move in that direction. Today there are regular political fights about universal health care, welfare, workfare and such. We continue the have vs. have not mentality but with added overhead -- both on the political scene and administering the various programs. This article offers a low-overhead alternative.

t’s a radical idea: Everyone should get an unconditional, monthly allowance, whether you’re rich or poor, old or young, overworked or out of work. An allowance that should be enough to live on, and how you spend it, is up to you. The only condition, as such, is that you have a pulse.

The influential startup fund Y Combinator is already rolling out a study on basic income. Netscape founder Marc Andreessen calls it “a very interesting idea.” And Business for Basic Income offers a brand-new web platform where business owners worldwide can express their support for the idea.

So what’s going on? It’s simple, really: The robots are coming, and people in Silicon Valley have realized that it’s only a matter of time before they swallow up most jobs. That it is high time, in other words, to start distributing cash. For free.
