I’m not quite sure why the use of that particular phrase should be considered a ‘fail.’ After all, I’m not remotely suggesting that we should neglect the problems of the rest of the world.
Whilst this article is about how Basic Income is easily affordable in ‘most modern, advanced economies,’ this should not be taken to mean that I don’t think it would also be workable elsewhere. But perhaps it will be shown to be workable in a ‘modern, advanced economy’ first! :)
Have a great day! :)
