Roderick Benns, “Goodbye welfare, hello basic income.”
Benns writes about the possibility of a ‘basic income’ in Canada, where each citizen would be entitled to $20,000. However, Benns seems to conflate a Negative Income Tax, which he effectively argues for, with a basic income, since he argues that $20,000 should be the ‘cut-off point’ where a citizen should not receive the basic income anymore. Regardless, Benns discusses the desirability of implementing a basic income guarantee in Canada.
