  • Is universal basic income possible?

    Best answer: It doesn't work. The government of Ontario, Canada tried it, but recently cancelled it, citing the high cost.

    Apparently, if you pay people to not work, many of them won't work. Not exactly a shock.

    Communism relies on the collective or group, with no incentive to improve.
    Why work harder if I see no benefit.

  • Is it true that some rich people aren't happy?

    Best answer: Maybe. QUOTE “Wealth & fame amplifies whatever is underneath. If you are unhappy, it makes you more unhappy. If you are insecure, it makes you more insecure. This is why so many people start to abuse drugs and become addicted once they become rich. If you are secure and at peace inside, wealth turns you into a... show more
    Best answer: Maybe.

    “Wealth & fame amplifies whatever is underneath. If you are unhappy, it makes you more unhappy. If you are insecure, it makes you more insecure. This is why so many people start to abuse drugs and become addicted once they become rich.
    If you are secure and at peace inside, wealth turns you into a philanthropist.

    In a way, wealth and fame are like marriage. None of these will make you happy unless you are already happy. And if you are not happy, they make you even unhappier.

    The secret of happiness is not that difficult: since happiness is a state of mind, then the source of happiness must lie within the mind and not in external circumstances.”

Giving people more purchasing power leads to more consumer spending, which leads to more demand, which... show more
    Best answer: Henry Ford paid his workers a salary that was much higher than the average at the time because he knew that if his employees made more, they'd be far more likely to be able to afford to buy one of his cars. Giving people more purchasing power leads to more consumer spending, which leads to more demand, which leads to more production, which leads to more hiring, etc, etc. Every time minimum wages are raised, the corporate doomsayers come out of the woodwork whining about how it will somehow ruin the economy...but it never quite does.
