I predict that if Andrew advocates pairing his enlightened policy of a UBI with a 50% Discount/Rebate policy at retail sale that his Forward Party will be able break through and become the majority with a politically integrative coalition not seen since FDR. Why? Because of the following facts: 1) a 50% discount at retail sale immediately doubles everyone’s purchasing power. Do the math! 2) It would also potentially double the available demand for every enterprise’s goods and services making it integrative of the tension if not full blown opposite self interests of both the consumer and business. 3) It ends inflation forever by implementing BENEFICIAL price and asset deflation. Whew! Do the Math! 4) It makes a $1000/mo. UBI able to purchase $2000/mo. of goods and services. 5) If everyone 18 and older is guaranteed $2000/mo. of purchasing power why would we need the payroll taxes working people and enterprise pay for welfare, unemployment insurance and even quite quickly for social security??? 6) Everyone wants to end inflation, the democrats want more economic democracy and the republicans want to lower taxes. The pairing of UBI and the 50% Discount/Rebate policy at retail sale effectively integrates the best parts of the economic agendas of both parties and also enables a political integration the nature and size of which we have never seen.
