Exchange, production, and Samaritan dilemmas
Supporters of basic income theories have an admirable goal. However, applying the economic way of thinking to the problem, we see that, while the goal is certainly laudable, the attempt to achieve that goal can lead to disastrous results stemming from knowledge and incentive problems faced by administrators. This paper examines often unexamined problems with implementing a Basic Income Policy.
