Universal Basic Income (UBI)

There has been calls recently for the introduction of Universal Basic Income or UBI for short.

This partly provides a safety net, esp in uncertain times, it also means those who are working in the 'GIG economy' without fixed hours or income at least get some sort safety net.

I have included a link to UK population data below [2].

This has been tried out in Finland and a report in New Scientist is presented below.
