I’m not suggesting each child should have a Basic Income of $1000 per month. If Basic Income for children was only at a sufficient level to pay for essentials, it wouldn’t be encouraging people to have children for reasons of financial gain.

And I didn’t ‘miss’ the problem of how to pay for Basic Income. See point 7. It’s just that I’m not in position to be able to do a full quantitative analysis of his proposals. In general, however, Basic Income is not a difficult thing to pay for, as I’ve explained elsewhere.

But thanks for adding your thoughts.
