Matt Bruenig, "Tired of Capitalism? There Could Be a Better Way," Wash Post 9/30/15.
Here is a sample: "True freedom requires freedom from destitution and freedom from the demands of the employer. Capitalism ensures neither, but a universal basic income, if successful, could provide both."
BTW, perhaps the author besides reading some economic history -- including work by Price Fishback on social welfare expenditures in the US and the Nordic countries -- could read some economic and political economy analysis of Basic Income Guarantees.
