Reducing wealth inequality is arguably the greatest threat to the future of humanity, with half of the world’s population (3.4 billion people) living on less than $5.50 a day. Despite efforts to address inequality, the gulf between rich and poor is growing and continues to divide us, and has only been exacerbated by global economic fall-out from the pandemic and the war in Ukraine. Yet, this crisis has triggered fresh, wide-scale and cross-party enthusiasm to put money directly in the hands of people. Universal basic income (UBI) – the idea of providing unconditional payments to individuals – while not a new idea, has emerged as a key policy proposal in over 20 nations.
GoodDollar.org is a basic income protocol that presents a people-powered, distributed framework to generate, finance, and distribute a daily digital basic income.
