    UBI would cause the economy to die, nothing would get done and there would be no motivation to work. It would hurt the people who work hard to earn money. Such a thing can only be enforced by guns. An authoritarian government. Destroying freedom and liberty. It may work for a short time but is never a long term solution. Remember the soviet union, it would be the same.

    Oh god the person who wrote this has no idea how economics work. Countries can fund stuff like this ANY way they want. You can't guarantee 0 inflation. Even if this was exclusively funded by taxing the richest individuals, it's still taking money that likely would never have been spent otherwise and putting it in the hands of persons that NEED that money and WILL spend it. That WILL create inflation. There is ZERO way to avoid inflation in this instance. I love the idea, but be honest ffs. Omg..you even talk about a 12% GDP growth and somehow DON'T mention how that's an inflationary action?? Either this narrator is dumb as hell, or he has an economically illiterate writing team. LITERALLY EVERY POINT YOU MAKE AFTER SAYING "NO INFLATION" DESCRIBES EXACTLY HOW AND WHY INFLATION WOULD BE RAMPANT. You can't seriously be this uneducated. I don't understand how you can say all of this stuff and think it makes sense.

    History repeats itself. This has been tried too often in too many nations and always fails due to corrupt government. Government will always try to enslave the people, and by handing over what freedom you have will lead to death and tyranny. Not trying to use the most recent nation but venezuela was a victim to this way if thinking.

    It does not matter what people spend their money on . The only thing that matters is that they spend it and have faith that the dollar (or whatever money unit you prefer) has value. You see, we don't back up our currency with gold any more. We back it up with faith.

    IMO, UBI should be large enough to only pay for necessities, so that you _could_ live without working but then you would likely not live an enjoyable life, only living with the bare minimum of what is needed to live. By having a job and earning money, however, you could buy some things you want as well, things that you may enjoy.

    If you give everyone below the poverty line money to try to lift them over the poverty line, what you'll do is lift the poverty line above that level of income. Poverty is not a lack of money. It is a lack of wealth. The cure isn't handouts of currency. The answer education and enlightenment. Open their eyes to what wealth is. Teach them to find their emterprise and build and grow business. Unless, of course, you want to perpetuate the miserable lifestyle of wage and debt slavery. Then just keep handing out out cash and encourage class strife..

    Reminds me of the old saying, "there's no such thing as free lunch." It's funny how socialist-style systems always rely on capitalism to create them. Who do they suggest pays for all this? The rich, perhaps? Well what happens when they decide that they don't want to pay and up and leave the country? Because trust me, they have more than the means to do so. The middle and upper classes will suffer from the increased taxes, which will affect how much money they spend and throw back into the economy. But hey, at least the lower income class will get some of that money and be less stressed. There's no such thing as free lunch, and creating ubi will be funded by stealing money from others. You also should not put your income needs in the hands of the government... because a government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything away. Im not saying our current system is perfect, but it is a lot better than ubi would be. Also, the amount of people being brought out of abject poverty around the world is increasing exponentially as it is thanks to capitalism. We are already on the way to ending poverty and world hunger... why put that in jeapordy when the poor in America are already much better off already than the poor in other countries? Maybe we should focus on helping those who are worse off to not starve first? There's an old saying, "if somethings not broke, don't fix it." And while it system is far from perfect, it has brought the poorest among us into a far greater quality of life than they otherwise would be in... and that's already a great achievement.

    All this sounds great as long as the government enforcing it doesn't become or isn't already corrupt. Plus you have to remember that any said government will never put it self in a position where its getting less money than it is at the moment, but will jump at the chance to financial strengthen it self and gain more power. You have to ask yourself, Is UBI intended to make my life better or make the government stronger. Most of the time its the latter.

    Crazy idea, so people get paid and a little tax gets taken away from that amount they get paid, so what if the government just ask the company to give the government half of what they would pay a human worker and say it’s robot tax The government gets more tax than if a normal worker is working and paying tax and the company is only paying the government half of what they would pay a full time worker for their work ??? The extra funds the government gets can go to UBI Every ones happy

    Inflation part was really poorly explained.. unless the legislative makes a law to enforce small businesses or the ones that deal with essentials (groceries, toiletries, dry cleaning, etc) to freeze their price, they will raise the price for sure. It actually happened in every community that experimented with UBI. I am not saying inflation is bad but all these UBI videos just gloss over its side effects and trying to make UBI sound like a perfect policy in every dimension. Maybe it's perfect because inflation is not a bad thing but simply saying it won't cause inflation when clearly every experiment entailed inflation is just not true.

    It's true the wealthy don't spend all their income, they save meaning less money in the economy. In Australia the unemployment benefits were doubled this year for 6 months due to covid19. People could therefore afford things like medication, car repairs, better quality food etc. They were actually spending all their money meaning it was going back to the economy, small businesses etc. From January 1st 2021 that goes, people will need to survive on $700 a week in an expensive country. The government states 'if we give the unemployed to much money they won't look for work'. There is one job for every ten people looking for work. We have job networks (private companies) that the unemployed must sign up with or no money. They sign up people on endless ridiculous courses. A universal minimum wage would be great, we could get rid of these companies that are funded by tax payers and cut bueocracy. But the old prejudices remain. Super citizens would knock it on the head unfortunately

    The population of the United States is about 328 million. If we gave every person $12,000 a year, that would be $3,936,000,000,000; roughly double our current budget. Even if we eliminate welfare, that would be a massive increase in our expenditures. Where is this money to come from?

    There was a sentence that always strucks me, it goes like this “ do you know who’s the smartest person on the earth?” “It not Einstein or Tesla” “ it probably someone who died because their family couldn’t afford for food” All I want to say is, with UBI, it can help peoples to move on from daily struggles and help more people to focus on a more progressive task, thus creating more productivity in the nation. Imagine if people not just work because of money, but instead because of passion.

    So, how would it work if all Americans got $1000.00/month guaranteed? To be realistic... and make it meaningful... let's have an annual income cap of $100,000.00/yr per household. Obviously poorer families would welcome the support and continue working their jobs, so that they could afford to better their situation and manage contingencies that come their way. Students could cover their cost of living with less part time work while studying. Young single workers and couples without children could more quickly save up a down payment for a starter home/condo. Minimum wage employers would have "slightly" more incentive to better working conditions so that people will still want to work jobs they otherwise would only do until a better opportunity came by... applicants for work permits would rise as people normally working minimum wage jobs begin asking for fewer hours (so that they can train for better paying jobs elsewhere. ) Poorer seniors would be less inclined to take up part time jobs for sustenance and could spend more time socializing, volunteering and pursuing other hobbies/interests or traveling to visit their families (if not in the same city/state.) If 50,000,000 American households qualify annually... this guaranteed income would cost $600 billion to administer. I'm sure things could be juggled alittle to fit it in... for instance with people enabled to better their situation... the poorer families might need less policing (domestic issues, less stress, less crime)... eat healthier and pursue better training and education opportunities which would open more doors. Students could afford to advance themselves within their field of study rather than dropping out due to financial pressure. Low middle class families might have more options to set up a side hustle that could turn a passion into a business... making the 'employee' an 'employer'... and creating jobs for others in the community. The tax base would increase from a variety of sources (as peoples incomes begin to rise and more entrepreneurs lease/buy commercial land, hire more people and apply for business licenses)... while the civil service would reduce (perhaps with attrition.) It's a great idea and would benefit most people in a modern country or one of rich resources. It would take vision and intelligence to effect in a productive and viable manner. Sadly... that actually is asking alot from our greedy and visionless elected representatives. It's also out of reach for much of the developing world... but would become a milestone to pursue there.

    Personally, I like the idea of UBI the way you explain it. However I still think that we shouldn't be giving it to people who don't need it. As you said, if you find a job that pays $1200 a month and gets taxed so badly that you end up with less than when you weren't working, that'd be bad. But, you can do a system like my current Disability does. If you have a job, everything you earn, is half taken from your disability. I currently get paid $771/m in disability, if I earn $265, $65 of that is exempt from the rule, and $100 is taken out of my disability pay so I would get $671 that month from disability while still earning an additional $165 on top of that. UBI can do something like that, to make it so you don't end up in a situation like which you described.

      Or you could simplify things, and just give everyone over the age of majority but with less than a household income of say $100,000.00/year... a flat $1000.00/month (no conditions no questions asked)... and let them keep anything they earn overtop that. You'll prevent people falling between the cracks, save on bureaucracy to administer and police the program, and encourage/enable people to better themselves who might otherwise get stuck in a rut (penalized when they earn over a minimum and quickly disqualified if they make even a moderate income.) Regional cost of living is an issue for any program to be effective. A single individual doesn't have the same financial obligations that a breadwinner for a family of 4 or 6 would have. There are too many variables for government to be meddling with on a case by case basis. Alot can be solved by applying a UBI above the poverty line and capping it at households earning under $x/yr. For instance... two families of 4... in one family only one member works... in the other... both parents work... both households make $70,000.00/yr. Both are urban and if the cap is $100k/yr... both households would set a boost of $12k/yr... The benefits?... the household with the sole breadwinner will be able to save more, and allow for a better work life balance... or just a better quality of life. The other household with two parents working... would allow retraining as an option for one or both breadwinners, allow for more savings, a side business... or just a better work life balance.

      @Jeffrey Martin so we did. You decided to move to find a place with better opportunities... sometimes that's the best thing you can do for yourself. I get your point. UBI would have kept you in your comfort zone while you were better served looking elsewhere for opportunity. Definitely something to take into consideration. There may be a point in time where so much automation has occurred, that moving for opportunity may not be practical. We're not there yet... but in a generation or two there may have to be some sort of UBI just to keep people and the economy afloat.

      @Jeffrey Martin Haha... nope. I'm 45 years old... raised upper middle class, dropped out of college due to lazy entitlement... then got spanked by life when my parents let reality teach me a few things. In my twenties I worked alot of factory and construction labor jobs... met alot of down and outers... this shaped my understanding of how people on the other end of the spectrum operate and what motivates them. I lived beneath my means and invested heavily. I'm doing well now as a family man (wife doesn't need to work despite her accounting degree.) I'm not a cynic by any stretch. People aren't perfect... but most people care about their kids and tend to slide into drug and alcohol abuse when they can't see a way out. Give them a way out... and most (not all) will take it.

      @David Henningson, I agree with most of what you say. To avoid talking at crooss purposes, I clarity: My comment applies in the sense that everyone “works” in some way making society persist over time. But this contribution is not recognised as work in an economic sense. Work performed in households, for example, is essential in enabling people to function as wealth creators in an economic sense. More specifically, remuneration as wages/salaries are set by supply/demand issues not according to the value created by work. So, by saying UBI is “our money” I mean money due to us over and above what is paid out in the economic sphere as wages and salaries,

      Wrong on all accounts. The state "provides" the legal tender (money) to its population to facilitate the transfer of goods and services. The state regulates distribution with taxes/policy and QE (money printing.) The state promotes its currency with international policy allowing free trade with partner nations and tariffs on goods from competing nations... as well as marketing debt instruments to both domestic and foreign investors/governments. The more demand for a currency on international markets... the more valuable the currency, and higher its overall purchasing power. Money is legally property of the national government... for the "use" of by its citizens. In a democracy... we can say that we "own" our national government... but not all countries are democracies... and even in democracies... people have rather... ineffective sway on national policy. Democracies work best when everyone is pulling in the same direction... otherwise... it's like herding cats (everyone wanting something alittle different. )

    It sounds like a good idea! For example students that leave school because they have to work, but if they have the money for buying their basic needs they could focus on studying and get a better job in the future with a degree in something they like. There could be even more people with degrees! More true prepared people! But let's be honest. Theory is not the same as Practice. A lot of things theorically works but when you play them on practice everything fails. We need more research and experiment in different communities, and in case it works, it would be awesome!

    This would be a great fix to most issues however one downside resentment of all people that don't get ubi unless all people get it. People that use food stamps get treated badly in stores they look down at people even if it is obvious that they work. I have used stamps in the past and wore my work badge so they would not be so judgemental but it doesn't matter they still snicker. I no longer get stamps but I feel so bad for people that do that even though they work hard and struggle because of low pay they are treated bad. Wages need to go up or ubi needs to happen it would help smaller companies keep employees. I work as a home health aide the pay is on the low side and employer has trouble finding workers this would let people do this rewarding job and let employer find workers willing to do it for the pay. I love my job just not the pay or benefits. I shouldn't have to struggle so much working a full time job and have to worry if I can afford medicines just like my clients worry. We live in a heartless greedy world unfortunately.

    UBI is basically communism in sheeps clothing. The is no such thing as free anything. It is NOT compatible with a free market. The wealth gap is being caused by government interference in the free market. Primarily through bail outs, too big to fail and the FED. But of course capitalism gets the blame for all this SOCIALISM.

      @Anne vaessen How do you quantify laziness? I personally know friends and other people who are completely irresponsible with their finances and living above their means and not being disciplined to get out of debt they shouldn't be in. Most people just live above their means tbh, and the Brookings Institute, a left-leaning research institute, mind you, did a study that said you have like a 98% chance to not be poor and have a 75% chance of entering the middle class if you do just 3 things: 1.) Graduate high school 2.) Have a full-time job (any job) 3.) Don't have kids or get married before 21. Those aren't particularly high bars to reach. Basically as long as you're not a complete idiot and don't spend yourself into a hole with debt and make extremely destructive choices, you shouldn't be poor. Keep in mind too, "poor" is relative, and even the poor in the US on average have a house/apartment, xbox, car, etc. Virtually nobody in the US experiences sub Saharan Africa or India levels of poverty. I think UBI is a good idea, but only to replace jobs that are otherwise gone for good. We're not quite there yet. That, or if it would replace all existing welfare to offset its cost.

    It is a great idea because it would force employers to treat workers better. It will let employers make more profit as well keeping wages at a level where both employer and employees can make suitable profits. I would continue to work because I believe a stagnant lifestyle leads to early death however it would let people find a healthy balance between work and pleasures. When poor you can not afford any pleasures. No vacations all the money is spent on needs only. Think if people were able to afford vacations there would be more profits and more jobs in vacation areas. Problem is rich people don't want all people to have these things because they want it all for themselves the poor would just get in the way crowd their beaches, get aways and restaurants. Greed is why they will never let this happen.

    This addressed one of my biggest concerns about UBI: wouldn't it dissuade people from doing essential jobs that are dirty/hazardous?

The proposed economic benefit is certainly appealing, but I honestly think the superior potential benefit is improving conditions for these workers.

    Living a middle class (=average) life off of UBI would never work. Zero effort can never lead to average results, as there will always be people who put in larger than Zero effort, which puts them above the UBI group in results, hence those being below average as there is no one 'below' them.

      @Kate Bee yes. And he does not talk about how an ubi would change anything. Please read carefully my next sentence: If we say: middle class= middle income And now make ubi= middle income Our new middle class income has to be higher. Why? Because you can not earn less money than the ubi. So new middle class income>than previous middle class income. This is not an economic question. I agree. We don't have enough economic data to predict the influence of an ubi. But he does not talk about the economic side. He talks about the math behind it. If we take economic into account we also need to consider things like taxes and other stuff. So to summarise: If ubi= average income New average income > old average income. Why? Because just one working person would raise the new average income to old average income + x

    $1000 per person would cost about 3.5 trillion a year. The government currently spends about 2.5 trillion on social services (welfare, social security, etc.) and collects 4.8 trillion in taxes total. Abolish all other social services (welfare, medicare, medicaid, social security) and we could go this by increasing taxes only about 20%. However keep in mind raising taxes raises the price of everything. Reduce it to $700 a month, and we could do it without raising taxes at all.

    The studies in this video don't take into account how many people might have avoided better paying but otherwise less desirable jobs because of UBI. If I knew I could make twice as much working construction as I could working at McDonalds (say $1200 a month vs $2400 a month), I would almost certainly chose construction. But if it was rather making $2200 vs $3400 a week, I might stick with McDonalds. Communism didn't fail because people didn't work (that was called social parasitism and it was illegal), it was because people didn't direct their labor where it was most useful, which in the free market is the highest paying job.

I also agree that some media are incredibly bias but most of them are more bias towards the right spectrum.

    First time I completely desagree with a kurzegesagt video, UBI (communism) isn't a reliable politic agenda right now, maybe in many years if production as services are automated ATM covering basic needs and expecting people to work more devotedly or boost the economy with the fund from UBI is utopical, most people would just devote their time to doing things they liked Having worked in many areas from construction to sales manager and in a socialist welfare country all the many examples I see suggest the other way, I'll just state that half the construction jobs are so demanding no one in their right mind would do it if they had any other alternative, and besides people in general wouldn't want to work and those who would , would also demand better work conditions I'm a firm believer that capitalism is the way to go in order to be fair, I don't consent to working and being taxed so others can be lazy and develop bad habits wich is something very visible in socialist countries, you can make the argument that welfare is at fault , I believe that welfare it just a little demonstration of the disgrace UBI would be TL;DR expecting a human who is having his necessities covered and with no pressure from no one, just out of good will work 8 hours a day 7 days a week in a decent or not so pleasent job , just to get some extra money is to say the least dreamful

      It all depends on how much you make it. "Basic necessities" is an arbitrary, meaningless term. Your great great grandfather lived on about $2.00 a day in modern Purchasing Power Parity. It also depends greatly on where you live (a studio apartment in Detroit is $300 a month, but in Manhattan its about $3000 a month). Once liberals stop thinking with the mentality of five year olds when it comes to economics, it's an idea worth discussing.

    This is a paradox. A UBI would require money from one of two sectors: federal or private. Getting rid of federal programs would protect small business owners but tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of low income federal workers would lose their jobs. Increasing taxes on business owners would certainly increase the prices of their products and services. There has to be an even better solution that we haven’t thought of

    As much as I love this channel, it does have videos (like this one) with a clear agenda. The only study cited to "prove" that people don't stop working with UBI is from 1970s.

    Waaaaaaaaaaaaait a minute. At 4:13 claims that investing in UBI wouldn't generate inflation. Which is technically correct, since you're just transferring funds, hence not contributing to inflation directly. But isn't that avoiding the original issue? Wasn't the problem, whether its economically feasible? Not if its good or bad? Because if you think about it, inflation will go up regardless if its a contributor or not. Inflation rises every year, so that means that eventually UBI would be rendered useless because the basic commodities and prices would be higher no? That means that UBI would need to keep increasing as well along with inflation. That's where the question of whether its economically feasible lies no?

      Actually inflation is wanted. The euro has a target inflation of 2%. If the economy works correctly it will grow parallel to the inflation. Theirfore you can raise the ubi after a few years to compensate for this inflation.

    I am retired now. But, the jobs I had to do were difficult. For instance I worked in kitchens as a pot washer, dishwasher, short order cook. I had a factory job that required heavy lifting, when I pulled a chest muscle i was fired because I no longer could do that job. Later with more education I became an office worker I spent about 3 years the easiest job I ever had. I spent time learning electronics and became an electronics technician. It paid well and I enjoyed about 12 years of that. I was removed from functional testing because the job was being phased out. I started work system testing. It was my only option.. The job moved out and they unloaded many employees. Later I worked with nuclear devices, a job that has many dangers. Even though I was designated as an electronics person the job I had to crawl through many highly contaminated areas. The job required doing things that were VERY hard, physically as well as dangerous. Now everyone loves to hear about UBI. I resent that some would get a free ride by taxing my retirement income or taking tax money and paying people who won't work/do not want to work and never had to go through the toughest time, like I did. I SAY NO TO UBI, unless I get it as well. My investments are not doing as well as I planned, Social Security didn't grant a reasonable increase in the last couple of years. My pension fund has not kept up with inflation either.

      Well you would also get an ubi. It is universal. Everyone would get it. But do you really want to make the argument: I had to work hard why should it be easier for others? Because if we would use this argument you would still hunt lions in the desert. Without a spear
