Why would we give basic income to the rich?

First to is to eliminate class discrimination and stigma and second wealthy people are more likely to be involved as they will feel a sense of contribution to a greater good of making the world a better place.

  1. Bravo! Although, I think the main reason might be to stop rich people saying “Why are they getting it and I am not?” The concept of ‘You don’t need it” seems to be alien to a lot of them. The balance will be restored in taxation, but that’s another thing that the rich will fight tooth and nail against.

    1. True.. If we apply taxation, the rich have very powerful people in our political system and there’s no way they’ll allow a bill taxing them more to pass in our Parliament
