    The idea for Yangbucks actually started as Painequids back in the 1790’s:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agrarian_Justice

    In response to the private sale of royal (or common) lands, Paine proposed a detailed plan to tax land owners once per generation to pay for the needs of those who have no land. That can be considered a precursor of the modern idea of citizen’s dividend or basic income. The money would be raised by taxing all direct inheritances at 10%, and “indirect” inheritances, those not going to close relations, at a somewhat higher rate. He estimated that to raise around £5,700,000 per year in England.[3]

    Around two thirds of the fund would be spent on pension payments of £10 per year to every person over the age of 50, which Paine had taken as his average adult life expectancy.

    Most of the remainder would be used to make fixed payments of £15 to every man and woman on reaching the age of 21, then the age of legal majority.

    The small remainder of the money raised that was still unused would be used for paying pensions to “the lame and blind.”[4]

    For context, the average weekly wage of an agricultural labourer was around 9 shillings, which would mean an annual income of about £23 for an able-bodied man working throughout the year.[5]

    • Of course, there and then a “landowner” was a member of the nobility. They owned not just their land, but all the land, and the towns as well. Not to mention a goodly number of the people.

    Leave us face it, if you have a (D) after your name, the odds are good that you’re a loser anyhow…

    UBI just sounds like “Welfare, but on the honor system”. I guarantee you’ll start seeing leased Jaguars in front of Section 8 housing if such a system was implemented.

    • Blood Angel 0629

      There are a lot of different UBI plans out there. Libertarians like the idea of the Grand Bargain, which is to gut welfare and replace it with UBI: Govt is allowed to spend a lot, but they have to keep their grubby fingers out of it.

      It’s sink or swim, equality of opportunity without the promise of equality of outcome that welfare state likes to try and force.

        Yeah, I can see no problems with that in our current state of delusion.
