Thank Chris! Was that part of the Mincome project in the 1970s?

That may have been a good experiment, but the payments were reduced by up to 75 cents for every dollar earned — so it was perhaps more of a ‘minimum income’ experiment, rather than a Basic Income experiment.

Or are you referring to some other scheme? If you’ve got a link, that would be helpful! :)

Thanks again!
