Preliminary Report on UBI Experiment in Finland
This report confirms what was said in the previous post: it is far far from simple to introduce a basic income scheme. While the report is mainly on the questions concerning the experiment itself, it already concludes that a ‘full’ basic income will be too expensive and that certain social security elements will have to be maintained, even if taxes will be high. Also, the question on who benefits and who does not leads to surprising results! Another dificult point is how to make the system compatible with EU law.
