We’ve seen growing support for a universal basic income or UBI. In a nutshell, the government would pay every citizen a set amount of money without any means testing or work requirement. Democratic Party presidential candidate Andrew Yang has made UBI a central issue in his campaign. Under his plan, every American over the age of 18 would get $1,000 per month, guaranteed.  This sounds great, doesn’t it? Who doesn’t want free money? But the plan raises a few questions — like how would the government pay for it?

In this episode of It’s Your Dime, host Mike Maharrey talks with Antony Sammeroff, author of the book “Universal Basic Income: For and Against.” They discuss the pros and cons of UBI and delve into some of the economic ramifications.
