@aral does a progressive UBI (“PUBI”) do anything to make sure your mincome doesn’t just get soaked up by landlords raising rent?
@garbados @davidak @aral your housing costs should be anything *in excess of* some generously-set expected-usage: water, power etc. Rent... that's a trickier Q, I think rents should be locked from increasing when UBI is deployed, starting several months ahead to reduce (it won't prevent) rent gouging. UBI should be scaled to local Cost Of Living - this incorporates Rent, basic food costs, and enough discretionary funds to prevent stagnation
