Molly Crabapple agrees: Universal Basic Income

The number one thing that would let more independent artists exists in America is a universal basic income.
Agree Disagree

Ralph Callebert agrees: Universal Basic Income

We usually focus on employment and production. Yet, much of the world’s population has no realistic prospects of employment, and we already produce more than what is sustainable. Basic income, however, separates survival from employment or production.

Martin Wolf agrees: Universal Basic Income

We will need to redistribute income and wealth. Such redistribution could take the form of a basic income for every adult, together with funding of education and training at any stage in a person’s life

Bryan Caplan disagrees: Universal Basic Income

The Universal Basic Income is indeed worse than the status quo. In fact, all the fundamental criticisms of the welfare state apply with even greater force.

Ecosocialist agrees: Universal Basic Income

With robotics taking the jobs of so many workers and the only new jobs not paying enough to live on, I think there is no more practical choice than to institute a UBI, and I think it should be tax-free and not means-tested so that people would not be penalized for their own creative efforts at working. Innovation would see a major spike, I'm sure.

Bill Gates disagrees: Universal Basic Income

Even the US isn't rich enough to allow people not to work. Some day we will be but until then things like the Earned Income Tax Credit will help increase the demand for labor.

Adam Ozimek agrees: Carbon Tax

It will help the government get out of the energy regulation business in the long-run. If innovation drives solar and battery prices low enough, the energy sector may become no different than any other industry in producing limited externalities. Thus the special regulatory consideration it merits will no longer exist.

Camila Thorndike agrees: Carbon Tax

As a cross-sector and market-based solution, a carbon tax empowers business to profitably transition to the clean-energy economy.

Alessandro Bruno disagrees: Carbon Tax

Therefore, carbon credits, carbon taxes, and related schemes are actually more about fueling environmental finance than environmental responsibility. The credits are less about projects and research in sustainable production systems and more about the financial interests underlying the market for carbon credits.

James Delingpole disagrees: Carbon Tax

By taxing carbon dioxide (the harmless trace gas which makes the planet greener), the US government would be signalling to the world that it still believes in the man-made global warming narrative. This, in turn, would keep alive the crony-capitalist “renewables” industry in which Paulson, Steyer, Bloomberg and their friends are so heavily invested.

Bob Inglis agrees: Carbon Tax

You then offset that [carbon tax] with a reduction in payroll taxes, dollar for dollar. And that's why I was so flexible. It's a tax swap, that's what I was talking about. It wouldn't grow the government, and it would approximate the attachment of these negative externalities to combustion fossil fuels.

Joseph E. Stiglitz disagrees: Universal Basic Income

You want your government to think more carefully about targeting programmes that help those in need, rather than universal. That’s a trade-off given the budget constraints on the public sector

Tyler Cowen disagrees: Universal Basic Income

"Let’s send a check to everyone" is an appealing idea, but I've come around to the view that doing so would do more harm than good. [...] It eventually would choke off immigration to the U.S. Voters don't like sending money to immigrants.

What basic income does is set a floor, a monetary floor by which no one will fall below. So you want to guarantee that basic income for everybody.

Gotz Werner agrees: Universal Basic Income

There has always been someone who put trust in me and said: Mr. Werner, show us what you can do. Exactly the same way the basic income says: We grant you so that you can live humbly but with dignity, and now you can show us what you can do.
