I think Basic Income is an interesting idea and I look forward to how the pilot project plays out. It is only common sense that if there is more money in circulation the economy with get a boost. This type of incentive or a higher minimum wage of perhaps $15.00 an hour or higher are effective steps towards growing the economy. Trickle down economics are only good for the very wealthy. Trickle up is good for all and if designed properly, and changes made gradually, either project could be self sustaining.
