"It seems like everywhere you look in the US these days, new guaranteed income
pilot programs are springing up. Over the past month or so, they’ve launched in
Newark, New Jersey; Tacoma, Washington; Denver, Colorado; Cambridge,
Massachusetts; and Los Angeles County, California.
“Guaranteed income” is similar to, but not quite the same as, universal basic
income (UBI). Whereas UBI aims to offer enough money for a basic subsistence
living to every single adult, guaranteed income might provide a more modest
amount — less than enough to live on — to a more targeted group of people (say,
the lowest-income people in the population). It can still be life-changing for
those who receive it."
