I predict Andrew Yang defeats Trump.
I’m just nowhere near convinced that UBI is workable. There’s hardly any conclusive research, let alone findings that unambiguously point towards the good results UBI proponents claim. It’s just been endless articles backed by thought experiments. And if thought experiments are sufficient as proof of UBI’s plausibility, then why don’t thought experiments about the disincentives to work just as sufficiently torpedo UBI?
Society and institutions are the result of evolved processes of trial and error. This seems like a reckless hard restart.
I say that as someone very interested in reforming the shit out of the current system, and open to gathering more evidence for UBI.
