Is the unconditional basic income feasible?

A very political and topical issue.And immediately the short answer: not only feasible, but also necessary!

In the case of the basic income without conditions, the state aliments the citizen.It then ensures that the citizen has sufficient basic income for basic needs.

This is then paid out to everyone without any ifs and buts and without checking permissions, without any consideration being required.The recipient may then also earn money at any time. without this being taken into account. So it is a money for all, poor and rich, for it is without conditions.

Other forms of support, such as Hartz IV, BaFöG, housing benefit…… Etc.eliminate this completely, because everything you have we have completely from the bdl. basic income covered. But that’s not all: there were also many tax breaks that are still being granted.

The main starting point of the critics is that one fears that the recipient lacks the incentive to work and that he would become a lazy one.That may be true, but we already have these problems. Then that’s just the way it is.

Because everything is so simple and without much administration.only has to be paid out, nothing else. This would result in considerable administrative burdens and thus also personnel costs.

Most of the arguments are emotional and shaped by the basic political attitude.”Socialist nonsense”, “nationalization” “removal of personal responsibility”, “slave wage”. The positions are very contradictory, but they do not attract much public interest. Here, more initiatives would have to address the issues and initiate PR measures.

In Finland, for example, there is currently an experiment of 2000 people receiving € 560 per month.Let’s wait and see. Other experiments have so far mainly shown positive effects. What the correct height is, that has yet to be determined. In each FAlle it must be based at least on the Hartz IV amounts.

Personally, I see an appreciation of this income as indispensable, as I see enormous burdens and upheavals in the labour market from AI.Fewer and fewer human workers are needed. And this will extend far into the skilled workers sector as well as into service personnel. The equivalence of capital and labour will be eliminated.

What is also of particular importance is the development of old age in Germany and the level of the pension.

If we compare the age structure with that in Bismarck’s time, we would have to work until 80; the question is, is this reasonable and the economy wants that, or

are old human workers needed?

We hear protests when foreigners move in and settle here.Without external immigration, however, fewer and fewer young people will have to look after more and more old people, or simply all of them will have to be paid by the state. ALTERNATIVLOS, some would say.

The ECB’s interest rate policy as an indirect result of bank bailouts (as a socialisation of losses) and the ensuing euro crisis (renewed socialisation of losses) has ensured that private pensions via life insurance are also and lacks income in old age.

Banks that do traditional banking transactions come into competition with fintechs, Facebook, PayPal & Co., but they skilfully avoid supervision and taxes in Germany.

The globalisation of markets and the shift in taxes (Amazon, Google, Facebook and other gangs) without the globalisation of social systems also leads to a reduction in the occupational pension component.

In Germany we are currently observing the “Uberization” of the labour market, more and more employed taxi drivers have to give up and become “self-employed entrepreneurs” with the private car, who then make profits for Uber and then flow to the USA – without the right tax is paid.

The mobility app and taxi competition is worth more than General Motors with its 200,000 employees.

Uber says it currently has only about 3,500 employeesworldwide.Most of the drivers, on the other hand, worked in precarious circumstances.

Do you still know Kodak?At the top, the former icon of the photo industry had 145,000 co-staff.Most of them were in a middle-class income. After the revolution of digital photography, 8000 employees remained over… or

Apple, the icon in the digital economy era, the world’s most valuable company, has only 47,000 employees worldwide, two-thirds of whom were employed in Low-Wage Apple stores.

And we see everywhere that relatively few, very well-paid top workers and start-up billionaires are increasingly facing low-wage jobs at companies like Amazon or Zalando and Uber drivers.Or become unemployed.

But competition means that with their low wages, they are pushing the more paid retail salesmen, warehouse workers or traditional taxi drivers out of the job market.

And it is precisely in this situation that the ever-increasing and more efficient artificial intelligencecomes into being.More and more areas of working life will be affected,

  • Robot care in hospital even
  • Robot operations,
  • SB forces, further shift to the Internet instead of department stores,
  • “self-commanding refrigerators that order themselves”,
  • increased replacement of units instead of repairofers.

Elimination of all paper-related work, no scanning, no storage

• Mr Computer takes over the fully automated office work.

• Mr Controlling-Rob, rationalise the remaining jobs away.

A study by the two Oxford professors Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne, together with the management consultancy Deloitte, analysed the automation potential of 702 occupations – and the risk that the profession would in future be able to replaced.As a result, 47 percent of U.S. jobs are at risk from advancing automation.

The researchers, on the other hand, consider those jobs that require human skills in particular – for example, human knowledge, negotiating skills or persuasiveness – to be safe from automation.

That is why the idea of bringing all the social and pension components together into the much more efficient and cheaper track of unconditional basic income is growing.No testing of hardness cases. No applications, there is a trough for everyone.
