Basic income guarantees are going to be one of the more interesting progressive social programs to watch. They drastically simplify the welfare system, removing a great deal of bureaucracy, inequality, and upside-down incentives that plague the current systems.

I'd also suggest that it would drastically lower the risk to starting a new business, potentially increasing the overall productivity of a country. I can tell you for sure that our Canadian health care system has easily contributed to my comfort in being an entrepreneur.
