American author and activist Noam Chomsky was asked about his views on Basic Income Guarantee during an interview with acTVism Munich, an independent, non-profit and grassroots media outlet that broadcasts in multiple languages from Munich. Chomsky’s views were mixed. He claimed that Basic Income Guarantee comes from the right wing, but said that it doesn’t have to have to have a reactionary component. He said that every country ought to guarantee food, shelter, and clothing, and that BIG would be one way to do it. His main concern with BIG was that he did not think it went far enough.
