future solutions, basic income
As Bertrand Russell put it in 1918, "A certain small income, sufficient for necessities, should be secured for all, whether they work or not, and that a larger income should be given to those who are willing to engage in some work which the community recognizes as useful. On this basis we may build further." Thus, with BIG no one is destitute but everyone has the positive incentive to work. BIG is an efficient, effective, and equitable solution to poverty that promotes individual freedom and leaves the beneficial aspects of a market economy in place.
We live in one social-economical-system and every one of us is dependent on the 'money' we use every day for trading our 'goods and services' and without the 'integration of the children' of this world into our 'trading system' they get no chance to contribute to our world.
