There is a political party in my country that want`s to start with something they call "citizen pay". This means that every citizen would get a sum per month regardless of financial situation. The sum that is proposed is roughly enough to rent an apartment and eat. So the meaning of this is to ensure that everyone has something to live of.
obviously many are afraid that many would just take these money and stop working. So i wanted to know what you would have done if you were given enough money to live and eat without having to work or applying for welfare.
and if anyone can explain if this would inflate the economy. If people had more money i`m sure prices would rise.
So are you happy to contribute yourself while others contribute nothing - even when they are able bodied? (I am talking about the scenario where hypothetically there WAS work they could do to contribute and "pay their way")
it's kinda hard not to contribute back to society. We tend to do it with or without money. Recently we've had examples of people committing the worst kinds of crime against humanity among people who "contribute to society" and make money off of money.
what crimes are you thinking of?
@ Tim Young - i wasn`t allowed to press the "reply" button anymore.
yes i would, i did it today and i`m gonna do it tomorrow again.
The sum these people are getting is not very much, it`s not a life that is highly sought after.
Also i really don`t want to have co-workers who have been forced to work.
What party is this? Just cos I wanna look into what they say about it :)
