Abstract:

A Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) is the unconditional government-ensured guarantee that all citizens will have enough income to meet their basic needs without a work requirement. Significant questions include: Why should we adopt a BIG? Can the U.S. afford it? Why don't the current welfare programs work? Why not guarantee everyone a job? Would anyone work if his or her income were guaranteed? Has a BIG ever been tested? This book answers these questions and many more in simple, easy-to-understand language.

"1. Basic Income Guarantee: The Right to Economic Security by Allan Sheahen argues that there is a moral obligation to provide everyone with a decent level of living. Your right to be--your right to simple existence--is not something for others to grant or withhold as an economic carrot, or to give as a gift. It is a universal right. Some call it "Social Security for everyone." In plain, simple English, Sheahen answers the toughest questions about an issue which would revolutionize the American way of life. We can end poverty, close the wealth gap, and provide economic security to everyone by giving all Americans a modest, yet unconditional income"--Provided by publisher.
