Why an Unconditional Basic Income is Highly Problematic – General Considerations and Quantitative Implications for the Case of Germany

Online veröffentlicht: 30 Apr 2022
Seitenbereich: 1 - 13

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The concept of an unconditional basic income is not new, but it is still the subject of much controversy. This paper looks at the quantitative effects of introducing an unconditional basic income, using Germany as an example. It examines the financial implications and other major problems of an unconditional livable income measure. The analysis shows that an unconditional basic income at the level generally called for by its proponents would require massive tax increases and thus a substantial redistribution of income from the middle and upper ends of the income scale downward.

UBI in Times of Crisis: The Net Basic Income Discussing the Case of Germany

Online veröffentlicht: 30 Apr 2022
Seitenbereich: 15 - 36

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The measures taken to contain the Covid-19 pandemic have resulted in, among other things, massive loss of earnings. Many people are therefore increasingly experiencing an income crisis in addition to the acute health crisis. Permanent existential insecurity remains for too many despite the numerous aid packages. The principle of need-based assistance and the determination of need for the provision of aid are proving to be insufficient. In the current crisis, earned incomes are affected most of all due to the measures taken. This leads to an asymmetric distribution of the crisis-induced burdens and thus to an asymmetric distribution of risks and burdens between performance-related and non-performance-related income, which exacerbates the redistribution in favor of capital income. The model of net basic income (NBI) shows one way to come to a solution of these problems in the crisis. Every adult person in Germany receives a monthly unconditional basic income of e.g. 550 Euros (calculated in this approach) during the crisis period. This amount is supplemented by the suspension of rent, lease, repayment and interest obligations during this period of income loss. The amount of money paid to each person is the net share of the crisis basic income. The household savings from suspending rent, lease, principal, and interest payments is the gross. After the crisis, the NBI can be raised to a full participatory UBI as economic momentum increases. In step with this, rental, lease and capital services are to be paid again in full contract amount.

Der Wert der Arbeit: Theologische und sozialethische Überlegungen zum Bedingungslosen Grundeinkommen

Online veröffentlicht: 30 Apr 2022
Seitenbereich: 37 - 48

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

In this paper I start from the biblical justification of the value and dignity of work (I), which is unique in the entire ancient world. At the same time, it leads to an overall biblical clarification of the image of man, so that man, who was expelled from paradise, is at the same time appreciated in his participation in the cultivation of the earth (I.1). The consequences for a Christian work ethic up to the Catholic Social Teaching (I.5) are explained, as is the decline of this understanding of work in the course of industrialisation and unleashed capitalism (I.4.). In the second part, the Unconditional Basic Income (II) is explicated in its multifactorial affinities, economically, legal-theoretically, socio-philosophically and in view of the global world situation. Finally (III), a summary is drawn that outlines alternative forms of the UBI in the world of work.
