Some people think universal basic income--where the government gives everyone JUST enough money to afford the basics so that no one falls into total poverty--is essential to fight financial inequality. But opponents think it would be WAY too expensive and could hurt the economy by stripping away the incentive to work. What do you think about the idea of universal basic income? Support your answer with evidence.
Elevate the discussion with a Make & Share. What do the "basics" cost where you live? Research and create an infographic that shows what a month of food, rent on a studio apartment, utilities and transportation cost for one person in your town or city. Include a section on your infographic where you answer the question: How would universal basic income work in your community?
