Won’t a Basic Income just make people lazy?
A basic income will be just that, basic. It will be enough to pay for basic food, basic housing, basic clothes. It should not provide any of the luxuries or gadgets that people have become accustomed to, such as smartphones or sushi dinners. One of the first maxims of economics is that desire is limitless. People will always want the shiny new thing, and be willing to work for it.
A basic income should actually decrease “laziness,” since it will stop the widespread practice of people faking or exaggerating illness or injury to get on Disability.
