Hello! With the 2020 American election coming up, I can't but wonder about Yang's plan for a UBI. It's certainly a unique plan, but is it a good thing to have or an accident just waiting to unfold?
- UBI assumes everyone is entitled to some money for being born of the human species even if a non-human was suffering more or did more for the society. This irrational assumption has always been a confusing flaw of both pro-lifers and socialists that I never understood so believe me I'll have a lot to say on it in R2.
- UBI focuses solely on income. Splitting between many bank accounts, having money in property as opposed to direct cash and a couple of others means of loopholes will lead to complete exploitation of the system that enables the middle class to appear like the working class under it and drain away from the rich, that would severely amplify my point 3.
- The rich are very blatantly rich enough to leave the nation. They'd leave...
loopholes will lead to complete exploitation of the system
There's no realistic motive to work under UBI
don't want the lazy [...] vote for very right-wing alternative
it's either so low it's toxic for the poor ...
I don't even think I need to use a source to prove this.
It doesn't calculate how much you have in property, estate etc
they will minimise their income bracket to just below whatever staggered levels there are to calculate the amount you owe in tax to the UBI system
