part, [revised]:
“With weak job growth, rising poverty, and [China] continuing to devour nearly all [global] economic growth, it’s an idea that is [returning from the ’40s] gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) [minimum standard wage] — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend”

But even that’s no good, because cost of living is so different in many areas of the country. A set “Dollars” is no good. The “standard” should be defined as the total cost, in the area, of a studio apartment, food, and a well used car.
