Promotion I most hear about is of UBI in developed nations … a livable income paid to ALL there as a citizen dividend. It's always couched in words about justice & poverty, but the poor there would get no more our of UBI than they get out of the welfare it would replace. Only the employed would get the bonus & would clearly spend it on consumerism as they do any other increase in income.
The effect of UBI in developed nations would be a big boost in CO² emissions & a widening of the gap between developed & undeveloped nations. It's a real "me first" idea in the West & no thought for the rest of the world or for justice.
