so what evryone think about this
If that were so, then smiles and a helpful hand would be worthless too.Free things are worth what you pay for them.
who said anything about taking work away from people?If you take away work from people you take away their reason to live and all of their status in society! I dont see how a UBI fight that. People dont want free money, they want work and i dont believe an UBI can set out on a large scale without killing the social peace. Its like telling you, hey you're utterly useless and your existence has no meaning but we feed you anyways.
That isn't correct the way you have written it. It would be cheaper to run the system of UBI than the social benefits system as it stands, but the money running through the system would be quite a bit higher. That second part is not 'cheaper' as such, but does not have to be a problem when the government can change its revenue side upwards as well.The situation here would be that paying an UBI to all germans that equal the income of a person that lives from sozial care, would be cheaper than what the actual social system costs (inlcuding administrative labor costs).
