The Story Behind The Countryside Living Allowance…

…or…

How I discovered a policy that could raise wages and bring about full employment…

…a thread.

(2/17)

Minimum wage can drive marginal workers into unemployment.

Or push them into undesirable jobs with no room for professional growth.

So a policy that can promote employment AND raises wages is the Holy Grail of Economics

It all began when I was working on a project for tax and welfare reform.

My job was to investigate the revenue generating potential of Land Value Tax and the ease of avoiding payment.

syed saddiq is just stupid for coming & telling us govt finances worst than what they thought as.

Dah kau bodoh, tak nak membaca, nak buat macam mana. baik kita hantar dia balik UIA
ini dah kali kedua pemimpin PPBM kencing atas janji manifesto yg sememangnya masuk akal dan harus dilaksanakan utk naik taraf kualiti hidup rakyat.

kali pertama berkaitan isu ptptn atau isu higher education financing reform.
hari itu beria batal GST. Kerajaan hilang RM23billion setahun.

RM23billion itu boleh digunakan utk perbaiki sistem kesihatan, pendidikkan, walhal beri jaminan perutukkan utk semua anak2 Msia yg dapat lanjutkan pelajaran di dalam Malaysia

Third Way, a group of self-described "moderate Democrats," is stoking fears that the progressive movement will hurt our chances at winning the mid-term and presidential elections. (1/4) nbcnews.com/politics/elect…
Third Way, which consists of many Wall Street bankers and real estate developers, accuses progressives of wanting to end capitalism, while the "moderate Dems" merely want to mend it. This is a gross mischaracterization of the progressive movement. (2/4)
It's the corporate & financial interests who don't want change, while progressives are talking about what Millennials and Working Families want (i.e., #MedicareforAll, #CollegeforAll, #JobGuarantee, #UBI, 100% #RenewableEnergy)...(3/4)

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is a psychological theory that explains human motivation. In his theory, people will prioritize their lowest level of needs before they can focus on their higher level needs. #basicincome #ubi medium.com/basic-income/u…
A lack of the ability to meet ones basic needs creates a "scarcity mentality". Everyone experiences it at some point, from not enough money, food, or time. This mentality can best explain why poor people make poor decisions. #basicincome #ubi
When someone lacks the resources to cover their basic needs, they become extrinsically motivated to seek work. This often creates a different work attitude than those who are intrinsically motivated to work, because they're working to fulfill different needs. #basicincome #ubi

"Could NZ be the place where talent wants to live?" Would you want to live in a place where an optical fibre connection exists in every building, like water, electricity and copper telephony? When the LFCs can't make more money without more fibre, they'll lay more fibre.
Mobile is a side-show and depends utterly on optical fibre backhaul. They're a free-space to optical fibre gateway and nothing more. Their intermodal competition is fierce. Not so in copper or optical fibre. Four regional Layer 1&2 exclusive LFCs will diverge without national
unbundlers and create deadweight loss in coördination costs for RSPs. LFCs keep the founding GPON frequency (#UBI communications) to lease or operate and there's at least one other NGO λ competing nationally with them.

Someone labeled #QAnon a #conspiracytheory

It's not.

I can objectively show more than once what @realDonaldTrump was about to tweet before he did it and also show coordination between Q and the DOD, and Q and @JulianAssange.

Huge events are happening, it's time to awaken.
2) in addition, while it's still being uncovered, there are deeply coded messages within @realDonaldTrump tweets. The specific intentions behind all of this are many, but one vital one is to specifically prevent #conspiracytheories from being concocted.
3) Another reason disclosure is self evident, it's a public disclosure. It so happens that the disclosures are happening in a location where the user base is sufficiently #redpilled to accept the #truths -they are a bit tough to take for #normies

De afgelopen maanden schreven wij ons meest progressieve, meest ambitieuze verkiezingsprogramma ooit. Hieronder wat puntjes waar ik extra trots op ben:
We hebben een programma per buurt. Als enige partij. Omdat dat keihard nodig is.
We hebben uiteraard het meest radicale drugsprogramma (en we geven een shout-out naar de toffe mensen van Celebrate Safe)

There's a new book coming out in April with an urgent call for Universal Basic Income. It's titled "The War on Normal People" (@WoNP_Book) and the author is @AndrewYangVFA. It's a must-read! Stay tuned to this thread for excerpts.

Pre-order: amzn.to/2iRRByv #BasicIncome
Here's the Table of Contents to get an idea of just how many important points this book covers, and the fact it also offers real and entirely necessary solutions like Unconditional Basic Income as America's Freedom Dividend. Make no mistake, we need UBI ASAFP.

"A wave of automation and job loss is no longer a dystopian vision of the future - it's well underway. The numbers have been telling a story for a while now that we have been ignoring… this is the most pressing economic and social issue of our time."

Exactly.
