The Roosevelt Institute found that adopting an annual $12,000 basic income for every adult U.S. citizen over the age of 18 would permanently grow the economy by 12.56-13.10 percent—or about $2.5 trillion by 2025—and it would increase the labor force by 4.5-4.7 million people. (Click link here.)
Putting money in people’s hands grows the economy, particularly when those people need the money and will spend it. And even in this community and district as well. $1,000/month would bring an extra $500,000,000+/month of additional income into the community, most of which would be spent locally. Then imagine that playing out in every community in the country, big and small. All of America, with districts everywhere will have more vibrant local economies, creating more jobs and leading to new businesses.
