Could the USA Afford a Basic Income?

Can America follow the Swiss and afford to give its people a basic income?

Due to Technological Unemployment, Ben Still believes the Basic Income not only is desirable, but will inevitably become essential in the long term. We will also need to continuously lower work hours until automation makes most jobs completely obsolete.

Ben Still is a director and writer, known for Jekyll Island (2013), The Secret of Oz (2009) and The Money Masters (1996).
