Finland experimented with universal income for all citizens. As might have been expected, they failed to achieve any positive effect. It’s something about the laws of economics. Turns out they are iron. There is no free lunch and “free” money turns out to be worthless.
Not to be deterred by reality, our own socialist failure, Bernie Sanders, proposes something similar in America. ONE of his crazy plans is to make anyone who wants it an employee of the federal government. You’ll earn that free money through basket weaving or something. The money will fail but at least you’ll have the basket!
