Link: A Town Without Poverty?
I found this interesting article this morning through my friend Samala Ray. Canada did a one-town experiment with guaranteed income back in the 1970s, but it was brought to an abrupt close due to an economic downturn - and here's the interesting part for me - the data were never analyzed, but they are being analyzed now. The researchers are finding some effects they didn't expect, and you might not either. It's a good link on the topic of economics, which will be the Google+ Hangout topic tomorrow at 11am PDT. So check it out!
