荷兰乌特勒支市将开始试验普遍无条件的基本收入

发布时间:2018-09-20 08:27 作者:admin 来源: 点击: 字号:

The city of Utrecht will start experimenting with a new concept that could revolutionize society as we know it: basic income。 Unconditional basic income is a form of social security system in which all residents receive an unconditional sum of money, regardless of whether or not they have another source of income。

In many countries, there are advocates for a basic income, and many scientists also back this idea up as a means to not only incentivize people to work in the field they really want to and become more productive, but also to regulate markets and to create economic and social advantages。 The concept will allow people more time to study, volunteer and work in what they are truly passionate about。 Of course, there is the risk of some people just slacking and relying on the basic income, but the increase in productivity of the former will surpass the deficit of the latter –; at least that’;s what proponents claim, and what the city of Utrecht wants to find out。

City officials teamed up with the University College in Utrecht to see if the system can actually work。 Alderman for Work and Income Victor Everhardt said in a statement:

“;One group is will have compensation and consideration for an allowance, another group with a basic income without rules and of course a control group which adhere to the current rules。 Our data shows that less than 1。5 percent abuse the welfare, but, before we get into all kinds of principled debate about whether we should or should not enter, we need to first examine if basic income even really works。”;

They are embarking on thi****periment without any prejudice, they just want to see whether it works or not。

“;What happens if someone gets a monthly amount without rules and controls? Will someone sitting passively at home or do people develop themselves and provide a meaningful contribution to our society?”;

The city also plans to talk with other municipalities about setting up similar experiments。 They are discussing with Nijmegen, Wageningen, Tilburg and Groningen and they want to start in the second half of this year。
