A Keynesian Case for a Basic Income

The Roosevelt Institute has a new policy paper out calling for a Universal Basic Income. I have not read the full paper. I did read the summary. It claims using Keynesian Macroeconomics that a UBI funded by deficit spending would grow the economy.

Methinks this is the Left’s version of Voodoo Economics. We don’t need more deficits. There are better ways of funding free money. I can be part of a flat tax/welfare reform.

  1. I would be very interested in knowing further the benefits that disabled seniors are eligible for. Because all the apartment rentals throughout north Texas are astronomical, and now, in addition to the rent, a person often has to have two to three times the income to qualify! Therefore, I have chosen to live at a nice motel. A continental breakfast is part of the rent, and my “room” is larger than a furnished studio apartment. By the month, the rent is $850, but I’m running short until my next social security check on February 2, 2018. My rent is $850 a month; my check is $1,310. I would be nice if someone would bring me perishable food and drink items, as well as cash for copays for medical needs, and personal needs such as laundry supplies, shampoo, soap, etc. I cannot get into my email, so the best way to reach me is by phone.: 972-434-1000, Room 314.
