@AndrewYang@twitter.com Sure, UBI is a concept that has worked at smaller scale. I'm not inherently against it.
But you can't propose this and assume that the next-level recipients (retail, housing, utilities) won't jack up prices to consume the new income. They will do it if they can get away with it.
Someone on here tried to keep steering a conversation like this towards "well, people will try home ownership more!"
Yeah, that's not a solution. That's a wishful-thinking attitude borne out of suburbia. Come see how people live in an actual urban center first.
