In terms of UBI it isnt enough to replace work. It's lower than the poverty level. Also what you do with your time is up to you but most things get stagnant. I wasnt on UBI but I was ok and had tons of free time. I did nothing then I did tons of things. Then i mixed it up and half my day filled.

I get what your saying and your partially right but at the same time you could get people there. Yang wants to give you ubi but he also wants to offer a free financial advisor. I dont think people are stupid but people in the hood got this living life to the fullest mentality.. I mean to be honest there are tons of factors for folks in the hood..

I listen to most of your argument against UBI. And, this is my take on said argument. It's self righteous. You have no concern for anyone other than yourself. It's callous to poor people. It's all about Adam. Great argument, Adam. Here's Smiley sticker, with a wink. 😉 So, your argument against UBI, is because you, Adam were lazy. We have to stop other people from also being lazy. Even though you, yourself were lazy.That's it. That's what you said. You know Adam, some people are just poor.Did you know, Adam. There are roughly 74 million children in the US.… Read more »

you argue against ubi and if it was a different time where the new jobs could not be automatically automated do to a computer program that more or less makes the the new product with limited human interaction like artificial intelligence is getting to the point where they can use a program to find a way to automated it in months not years that's the promise of artificial intelligence so all the changes this time are monumental compared to last time when you had automateshion but the new jobs need hunnam interaction because the people of that time did not… Read more »

I have to say that your anecdotal example is stupid. Research after research has debunked the thought that if you give people extra money on top of what they earn, they do nothing with it. Look at Alaska for an example with the Oil dividend they receive. If the majority of Americans live paycheck to paycheck and can’t afford a $500 unexpected expense and are then given $1000 additional every month. Think logically generally most of them will pay bills, buy goods, and services to help their lives. Which will help the economy. Also mass laziness won’t happen because 12k… Read more »

What you said is true…maybe for you UBI does not work but for some other people that lost their job and have a family to feed might work for them. yang2020.com

UBI doesn't equate to salary. You can't be lazy w/ just 1k u won't survive. But when you have a job and then add UBI of 1k, now that's a game changer.

You bring valid points about Ubi , but also maybe it's worth considering a maximum amount of hours each person can do in America , like 20 or 40. Other countries already have it set to 4 -6 hour shifts or even making it illegal to do over 40 hours a week. This helps finding employment easier. The point of Ubi is to draw less human labor to society which I think is a good thing , but also shows that maybe it's to early. That being said it's better early then late I think.
