The Finnish Social Insurance Institution, Kela, is currently drawing plans for a nation-wide implementation of basic income –; a social system that would provide a guaranteed, sufficient income to all people, regardless of whether they work or not。

It seems like in the past couple of years, we’;ve been writing more and more about basic income –; because the entire idea is picking up a lot of steam。 In case you’;re not familiar with the concept, basic income is basically a universal basic income, a system of social security in which all citizens or residents of a country regularly receive an unconditional sum of money from the government or a public institution。 At a first glance, this sounds absurd; giving people money for doing nothing, how could that work? Well, in a developed world where manual labor is required less and less, people would get rid of the stress of having to work something they detest just to make a living, and it will allow them to focus on what they actually want to do。 But wouldn’;t people just stop working? Well…; no。 Several pilots have already been done over the past decades。 Even in the US, back in the 70s, Guaranteed Annual Income (GAI) was a goal of President Nixon and the House even successfully passed a bill for it。 Large-scale pilots were implemented in Seattle and Denver, finding that hardly anyone stopped working; men reduced their hours on average by 8%, and women did so even less。 It was also shown to harbor a healthier economy, increase administrative efficiency, reduce bureaucracy and increase competence for key positions。
