    I think that a global basic income should be quite high so that escape from poverty does not remain imperative. In my view, that would be the average income of Brazil, which is relatively high, close to EUR 650 per month. For most people in impoverished, low-income countries, that would be a ray of hope they could not grasp, but for people in high-income countries too, it would still be a significant addition to defusing some of their worries there.
