An Efficiency Argument for the Guaranteed Income
AbstractThis paper uses what could be called a multi-school approach to poverty policy, asking the following question: Given the many proposed causes for poverty, and the conflicting theories about how potential solutions would work, what conclusions can we draw about policy? This paper concludes that the Guaranteed Income is the most efficient and comprehensive policy to address poverty.
