RE: Andrew Yang and the concept of "Universal Basic Income"
The elimination of complicated taxes and welfare distribution systems are the best arguments for UBI. However, with modern technology I fail to see why we need to give it to everyone including those in a high tax bracket. It should be a scaling system that slowly goes to zero as your income rises. Also with immigration there presents a challenge and property ownership. Do you really want to give $1000 a month to some rich person who moved to your country bought up some real estate, doesn't contribute to the economy and just sits there collecting the UBI with family members who also don't work?
I think if your worldwide income is over $100000 or if your worldwide networth is over $1000000 you should not be getting universal basic income. Citizens should not be a liability and UBI turns them into one.
