Can we wait for examples, maybe from Europe, before jumping into this ourselves? Let's see a large-ish country like Germany offer basic income to all its residents (plus to all influxing refugees). If things improve, other welfare programs disappear, and everything becomes efficient and hunky-dory, maybe we can try it here (we can start in Vermont and California).
