Robin, like many others, sees the contradiction of our modern age, what was supposed to be ‘an age of universal well-being’ has fallen incredibly short of what economists envisioned and promised for our future. We are working as much or more laborious hours than the generation before us, yet wages remain stagnant, basic human needs such as housing, food, medicine and education are still a matter of daily survival for the majority of Americans.
Universal Basic Income
Universal Basic Income (UBI)
All modern societies are in agreement that a basic standard of well-being of all residents is essential to the well-being of the whole. What economists call a positive externality.
“A Universal Basic Income (UBI) is a regular financial payment made to all eligible adults, whether they work or not, regardless of their other means, and without any conditionality whatever. Receiving it is a fundamental entitlement that comes with being a member of society: people can know that it will always be there, now and in the future. It should not be a fortune, but it should ideally be enough that no-one ever needs to be hungry or cold.” – David Nettle – How Universal Basic Income Solves Widespread Insecurity and Radical Inequality
UBI is a benefit not just for the collective but for individuals as well by providing individual security, increased health outcomes (physical and mental), reduction in crime, more productive and enjoyable jobs, and an increase in entrepreneurial activities accelerating innovation.
As your member of Congress, Robin will work on and support initiatives to create a universal basic income within the Untied States.
