Why Alaska’s UBI Program Should Go Nationwide

Why Alaska’s UBI Program Should Go Nationwide

Alaska has a Universal Basic Income program which is funded by oil, the state’s 740,000 citizens support the dividend, which gives everyone an annual check of about $1,000 to $2,000 ($4,000 to $8,000 for a family of four), and both political parties in the state are in favor.

Alaska’s UBI is funded by its oil reserves, what we do with Alaska we should do with the whole country, but instead of oil, it can be funded by automation and the reduction of useless social services.

Universal Basic Income is proved to reduce crime, eliminate poverty, reduce inequality and boost the U.S economy by trillions.

A universal basic income would give an upgrade to our current economic system, and directly lift the living conditions of everyone, and change forever what it means to “make a living”.

Trump was elected because we automated away a ton of manufacturing jobs, according to Andrew Yang, an American entrepreneur running for President in 2020 on a platform based on a universal basic income plan.

Andrew Yang is an American entrepreneur who will run for president in 2020, a universal basic income for all adult Americans is the main objective of his agenda.

Recently, Yang discussed the automation of jobs in swing states that led to Trump’s election.

Andrew argues that the districts that swung to Trump most have a direct correlation to districts that had the most jobs lost to technology.

“More of this is coming, he says, and we must act now.”

“Join Andrew’s #OneForHumanity community: a group of 100,000 Americans pledging to contribute $1 to Andrew’s Presidential campaign in an effort to show the political elite the people want them to put humanity first, solve real problems, and keep America moving forward.”

“It all begins with a Universal Basic Income for all American adults, no strings attached.”, he writes on his website.

Self-driving cars will replace the most popular job in the United States, truck drivers, a universal basic income seems to be the only objective solution to that.
