The power of unconditional cash

A Film About

A BOLD IDEA

Imagine an economy in which no one’s income started at zero. Imagine knowing that you and everyone you love would always have a little bit of cash coming in every month no matter what. 

Ultimately, how we design our economy is up to us. We can continue to allow Americans to suffer financially in a system rigged to benefit those who already have wealth, or we can give our economy a long overdue update by investing in this country’s greatest resource: its people. We invite you to explore a BIG, BOLD idea with us. It’s called Universal Basic Income (UBI).

VOICES

“WHAT WE’RE SEEING AS IT RELATES TO OUR CASH DISBURSEMENTS, AND THE GUARANTEED INCOME RESEARCH, IS THAT...

IT’S ALLOWING INDIVIDUALS TO ACTUALLY PURSUE JOB OPPORTUNITIES THAT PROVIDE DIGNITY, AND PURSUE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES ACTUALLY IN LINE WITH THEIR PASSION...NOT JUST TAKING A JOB FOR THE SHEER SAKE OF WORKING.”

“I DIDN'T GET FINANCIAL AID ALL THE TIME LAST SEMESTER, SO I WAS HAVING TO GO AND BUY MY BOOKS WITH CASH. SO THAT REALLY HELPED...LIKE TO EVEN BE ABLE TO HAVE THAT OPTION, AS SOME PEOPLE DIDN'T HAVE THAT OPTION…THEY HAD TO GO WITHOUT THEIR BOOKS, OR HAD TO SHARE A BOOK OR BORROW.”

“IT’S JUST HARD. AND YOU HAVE NO HELP. AND YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE ALL ALONE. IT’S A LOT TO TAKE IN. AND IT’S VERY STRESSFUL...ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU WANT YOUR KIDS TO HAVE EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD.”

“MY IMPACT WITH THE MONEY WOULD BE THAT I WOULD USE IT TO HELP WITH MY KIDS, HELP WITH MY BILLS, HELP WITH TRANSPORTATION...

BASICALLY PROVIDE FOR MY FAMILY. AND BEING THAT I GET PAID ONCE A MONTH, IT WOULD HELP ME OUT TREMENDOUSLY.”
