The problem with this idea is that you're giving money to everyone. It should only be given to people earning over, say, $30K a year. Why the hell would you give it to poor people? If they wanted money they'd go get real jobs.

Its should be a sliding scale so they appreciate it equally.

So those on the dole should get enough for a flagon and pack of fags (woohoo), whereas the filthy rich should get enough for a new Lexus (cause the old one needs new tyres).

I'd be happy with this idea. Another new Lexus would be nice. (yeah right!)

The question isn’t how much money should we give everyone, but how long would it take before that new-found wealth was redistributed to the 10% of the population who currently hold 90% of the wealth.

Ignoring probable hyper-inflation, think of the number of stories you’ve heard about Lotto millionaires who spend it all within twelve months. Wealthy people don’t actually ‘make money’, they’re just adept at getting it off other people, and then holding onto it.

So if you gave everyone a million dollars each, how long would it take before the people who are adept at getting money off other people did exactly that, and 90% of the wealth was once again redistributed to 10% of the population? Two years? One year? Six months?
