UNITED STATES: U.S. Department of Arts and Culture Sponsors Basic Income Grant

download
U.S. Department of Arts and Culture’s report, “An Act of Collective Imagination: The USDAC’s First Two Years of Action Research” recommends a universal basic income grant (BIG). The USDAC report highlights how artists under present policies have to acquire grant money for each individual project. Such a grant would be especially useful for artists to focus on their creative passions, but also beneficial for the rest of society. USDAC also argues that the adoption of the BIG would greatly reduce bureaucracy by guaranteeing every citizen a sufficient income to pay for basic needs (food, shelter, healthcare, etc.).
