RSA | ~ A BASIC INCOME FOR SCOTLAND ~ | Blogger: [🧑🏾‍🤝‍🧑🏻Basic Income, also called Universal Basic Income (UBI), Citizen's Income (CI), Citizen's Basic Income (CBI) (in the United Kingdom), Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) (in the United States and Canada), or Universal Demogrant (UG), is a periodic cash payment delivered to all on an individual basis, without means test or work requirement ~ wikipedia🧑🏼‍🤝‍🧑🏻] ... Finland’s basic income trial: A springboard for bolder experiments? or could it inspire other countries? Basic Income (”Borgerløn”) in Denmark. Why was basic income on the political agenda in Denmark in 2016 and not in 2019 general election?. Due to the fact, that it's not beneficial to the Jewish/Rothschild banking Cartel empire?. Is Denmark a poor country? Quite the opposite, in 2014, Denmark has advanced two places from a ninth to a seventh place with a GDP per capita of $58,930. Denmark thus surpasses Bermuda and Kuwait on the list and now also ranks right before Sweden (right now, the Swedish krona has not been this weak against the dollar in 17 years)... Does Robots take our jobs?. They have been for a very long time. But with the latest advances in automation that endanger the livelihood of millions of people, politicians and think tanks around the world are beginning to consider ways to avert a potential poverty crisis? NOT ONE "Borgerforslag ", out of hundreds upon hundreds, has been approved in the danish parliament!!! (Citizens 'proposal is a Danish experimental scheme which means that citizens with voting rights to Denmark's legislative assembly, the Folketing, can present and support so-called citizens' proposals in order to have them discussed and voted on in the Folketing)... So many questions! So little time!... |

This report explores how Scotland can move towards a basic income by examining at how effective, desirable, and feasible a basic income could be. Our findings are based on working with communities in Fife and modelling the economic impact of a basic income.

A Basic Income for Scotland has four parts:
  1. Showing the failings of the current system of welfare, based on means-testing and condi­tionality, in reducing poverty and economic insecurity.
  2. Reporting on the findings from a series of citizen and stakeholder deliberations in Fife, which is currently explor­ing a basic income trial.
  3. A model of the impact that basic income could have, conducted by Landman Economics using its Scottish tax-transfer model.
  4. A series of scenarios for political, legal, and administrative pathways toward first a Scottish basic income experiment, and then the adoption by Scotland of an initial basic income.
Throughout this research, we have been fortunate to engage closely with residents in Fife and hear their voices.

Our modelling found that in Fife, a basic income of £2,400 a year would half destitution and reduce relative household poverty by 8.5%. A basic income of £4,800 a year would end destitution and reduce relative household poverty by 33%.
