Killer Arguments Against Citizen's Income, Not (32)

Posted on the 04 March 2021 by Markwadsworth @Mark_Wadsworth

From The Guardian:
The Conservative candidate for London mayor, Shaun Bailey, has been criticised for arguing people paid a universal basic income (UBI) would blow the money on “lots of drugs”...

Bailey also questioned whether it could “drive prices up for basic goods when we know people could just buy them because the money’s there”. He added he was “concerned about work incentive” and a UBI was not clearly defined.

There's not much point responding to that, apart from pointing out that Bailey has proved himself to be totally clueless or an utter shit. Or both.
