What is universal basic income?
The goal of UBI is to provide financial stability and security to everyone, ensuring that we can all cover costs of living expenses, food, and medical care. In a crisis like the one we find ourselves in now, this lifeline can be the difference between surviving and losing everything. In moments of instability, but perhaps not global crisis, UBI can simply help bridge the gap until conditions improve. Even in good times, UBI can allow people to accumulate modest savings for a potential rainy day.
