Unfortunately, debates about the basic income are often quickly closed down by criticisms that rely on false or misleading assertions - and which often arise out of a lack of understanding of some fairly basic economics. This book aims to expose the flaws in these criticisms and explain, in plain English, the huge potential benefits of a basic income system, how it could easily be afforded and how it might best be introduced.
The opportunity to introduce a basic income is a fantastic opportunity to transform our society for the better. It is an opportunity we should consider most carefully.
From the introduction: "I didn't write this book in order to help people become 'moderately clever.' I wrote it for those people with the determination to develop the sort of exceptional super-intelligence that only a few people even know exists. Whilst many people might benefit from reading this book, it is primarily intended for that tiny proportion of the population who have the capacity to be amongst the outstanding thinkers of our age."
