Pitch. Facebook co-founded Chris Hughes pitches his recommendation for a guaranteed basic income for all Americans in his book titled, Fair Shot: Rethinking Inequality and How We Earn. In the context of the current high unemployment rate thanks to the efforts to reduce deaths from covid-19, the notion of a safety net in the form of guaranteed income will appeal to many individuals. The form Hughes describes might not be the best solution, but it is well worth taking into account as we explore alternatives to providing a baseline level of support through good times and bad.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
