UBI News Thread

This is for sharing news or updates for Universal Basic Income programs from around the world.

I’ll be interested in the results from this.

UK will continue to pay furloughed workers 80% until October. Not announced if they’ll do the same for self employed but I’d expect so.

Not qualifying for either scheme is pretty annoying.

I live in Santa Clara county and hadn’t heard about this, cool stuff!

Oh man. Super-interested in this one. This is a population that absolutely needs and deserves the support, but is also (unfortunately, and unfairly) disproportionately likely to suffer from mental health/substance abuse/support system issues. It’s a risky population to test with because there’s a lot that could go wrong, but it would be incredible evidence for the viability of UBI if it works out.

Fingers crossed for those kids.

Yang was on the most recent Sam Harris podcast talking all about UBI. Worth a listen.
