Social Dividend Based on Overproduction


  • Aimin Dang

    (Jinan University, Guangzhou, China,


At present, although there are many cases of governments distributing money to their citizens, the fund sources are still very limited. This paper argues that, with overproduction as the material basis of a social dividend, it is possible to raise funding for this social dividend by issuing currency. This can not only expand the fund sources of the social dividend, but also help to solve the fundamental contradiction of capitalist overproduction and to realize socialism as soon as possible. JEL classifications: P11, P21, E58
