“The Case for a Basic Income” by Robert Jameson is the 12th book I’ve finished this year.
“The basic income would help to restore our freedoms. It would give us each the negotiating power to drive a fairer bargain with potential employers. It would make us less dependent on employers and give us the freedom to say no to them when we feel they fall short of reasonable standards of decency and respect. And the removal of means-testing would greatly reduce the power of the state to snoop into our personal affairs and interfere in our lives.”
