@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.
This, btw, is why you're having trouble reaching truly progressive and younger people.
We don't trust businesses to Do The Right Thing. If they can get away with highway robbery, THEY WILL.
UBI without protections is useless; and may well end up *expanding* wealth inequality.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
