I will continue with my review of Nozick in the next day or two. In the meantime, however, check out this misleadingly-titled report by Sarah Holder “The Year Basic Income Programs Went Mainstream“, which begins by noting that 20 guaranteed-income pilot programs have launched in cities and counties across the U.S. since 2018, with more than 5,400 families and individuals receiving between $300 and $1,000 per month. More accurately, Ms Holder’s report also acknowledges that these “local programs are small in scale and duration” and that calls for a federal guaranteed income policy have not yet succeeded (link in the original). That’s putting it mildly! My 2020 paper “Guaranteed Income: Chronicle of a Political Death Foretold” explains why these efforts are doomed to failure.
