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.
