Re: Universal Basic Income vs Universal Basic Assets

Re: Stock scream room

Stocks are inflation + dividend. Gambling/hot money cycles in the short term

Inflation can be "good" when its smart loans being made or gov printing money for infrastructure. 2007 was dumb loans inflation and Iraq war

Re: Universal Basic Income vs Universal Basic Assets

If everyone gets 1000/mo, rents go up 1000/mo

Add to my list above, subsidized child care and moving expenses

Next question is, when should the gov do a job itself vs outsourcing to private sector

I hope Im healthy enough to scrub toilets when I'm 90, for $5 an hour. Gov should provide unemployment ins so its easy...
