Hey, it's (still) a (mostly) free country. If not from campaign funds, surely he can direct his money wherever he likes - That way though I'm no lawyer, my guess is lt's not vote buying per se, but IMHO? It is.
I'm also not an economic scholar but my guess is regardless of the results his one-year experiment will be hailed by the usual suspects and Yang himself as irrefutable proof Universal Basic Income works -
How convenient that no short term/small scale UBI "test" like his would reveal the mid-to-long term/large scale effect of its subsidized cash infusion inflating the cost of everything, in time wiping out any gains.
It's simple supply & demand. More money, more demand, all in pursuit of the same amount of goods and services will cause prices to rise accordingly & that grand a month to evaporate. WAIT! There's MORE -
Yang's UBI trial doesn't account for any "de-growth" policies he and the Dems may enact. Like that GND? It's NOT what it says on the tin, folks. Prosperity creator? HA! It's an economy contracting wealth destroyer.
You can bet Yang's not gonna piss all his money away. But if the Dems take over, I advise getting out the rain gear & seeking out high ground, as America's in for one painfully prolonged economic "golden shower".
I think you are more than right, Riddick. Personally , I don't see Yang as of any BFD. Don't have a clue who the Socialists plan on running? I do know if they win, no more elections will ever be needed again. Slaves, don't require silly things like an election.
