The fact that this idea is considered on such a high level is a major victory in the humanity's battle against suffering!

"Human progress is our cause, liberty of thought out supreme wish,
freedom of conscience our mission, and the guarantee of equal rights
to all people everywhere our ultimate goal."

"The study’s economist, Guy Standing, professor of development studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London, and a founder member of the Basic Income Earth Network, has been defending the idea of an unconditional income for 25 years. The project team met to discuss their final evaluation at the offices of the Council for Social Development in Delhi. Standing said:

“The debate has become respectable. In the face of the emerging informal sector and growing inequalities, increasing economic insecurity, a universal basic income is a necessary base for recreating social security — not as a panacea, but as a base.” He said the guaranteed income was seen by libertarians as a tool to promote individual freedom, while progressives regard it as the base level of social security. “The left have to rethink their vision of a good society. We need to think from the perspective of the precariat, not from the old proletariat. We need a combination of a redistributive agenda, a move to basic income, and a policy that strengthens the voice of the precariat.”

In addition to the measures described in this great video from our EU colleagues, people are working on math to #TaxTheRobots   #LiberateHumanity We need your help independently developing and cross-testing these models; e.g., transaction taxes of $0.0000xn per trade/share/block commensurate with something along the lines of $2,000/mo #BasicIncome  (in 2013 USD).

The average holding time for an issue of stock is something like 22 seconds in this #HFT era. These bots are magnificent value identifiers & extractors; now we need to teach them how to circulate liquidity to keep the financial circulatory system sustainable for humanity.

Economies are circulatory systems. We need to ditch the "d" word (distribution) and focus on educating how http://j.mp/EconomiesAreCirculatorySystems
