goes into detail about how much a program of guaranteed income for everyone would cost in the United States, and suggests some probable effects that would have on everyone's everyday behavior. I read the book a year or two after it was published.
Murray's own summary of his argument
and reviews of his book
may inform the discussion here. The policy proposal of a basic income guarantee is interesting because
a) no country has ever tried it, really, so there isn't a real-world experience case to look at yet,
b) a remarkable variety of people from otherwise differing points of view have proposed it over the years.
I'm still trying to make up my mind how the trade-offs of a policy like a basic guaranteed income nationwide would compare to the trade-offs of "targeted" social welfare programs for elderly, disabled, and poor.
