Response to PETRUS (Reply #13)

Sat May 5, 2018, 07:38 AM

14. I think I told you twice now. The money does not come from any type of productive effort on the

 

part of those receiving it. Since the payments are universal meaning everyone, they are unlike anything we have done before. Most payments like medicaid go to a small segment of people. So they are not simply transfer payments like we have in the past.


I think the idea of universal basic income is over everyone's head since all anyone here can do is explain it in simplistic terms that make no sense.

I will have to research the idea to get my answers.


I studied global economics in graduate school so I have a reference point to where I am coming from. I don't give your responses much weight. Especially since you poo poo economics like you do.

I was hoping some DUer had an economics background. And I was trying to point out that the idea isn't simply a should we or shouldn't we political issue.
