    Martin Whitlock:

    Changing public perceptions about the basic income, depends upon changing our understanding of useful work and the way that we measure it. Since all of us do unpaid work, and none of us could survive without doing it, that ought not to be too hard.

    The crucial point is this. The basic income is not paying people for their otherwise unpaid work: it is providing them with the financial investment that makes it possible for them to do it. Investment in people is not “something for nothing”, but sound economic practice. It is also what people deserve.
