My biggest problem with guaranteed income is that unless you're some hot shot innovator, you're stuck with only the basic income, unless somehow someone values your "art." In theory, it works well enough domestically, but let's say I dream of moving to Japan, or some expensive US metro area. Unless somehow they agree with all this crap, how will I ever afford being able to move there? I can do so now on an upper middle class salary and time. I doubt a guaranteed income would provide the cash needed to do so, and considering what is hot in today's financial world, there's no fucking chance I can run with the big boys. Are people like me fucked? (Short answer: yes)
All this feels like it does is give the most wealthy the ability to close off the gates to their lifestyle to anybody who doesn't have the foresight to create a "Yo" messaging app.
There are a lot of people out there who are not creative, but very diligent. Me? I can be creative (in an artistic sense), but not nearly enough to generate any revenue independently. I'm pretty intelligent ("gifted program kid" here), but not so much so that I'm going to be revolutionizing the [x] industry. Guess people like me are fucked for having dreams, huh?
