Giving people a foundation of basic income empowers them to get what they need.
The Logical Foundation’s Basic Income Platform enables you to spend money more impactfully – to their specifications. Any location, any population, starting with a minimum program budget of $90,000, we will deliver at least 80% of your money directly to human beings while conducting rigorous research to understand the impact of basic income better.
How do you maximize the impact of your money?
Aid programs should be designed to bring as much value as possible to people in need. Conventional aid programs help beneficiaries by providing them with goods and/or services.
Unfortunately, it’s expensive to provide goods and services. Paperwork is usually an undignified hassle, and beneficiaries rarely get exactly what they need most. Oh, and many interventions are ineffective or harmful.
Basic income is architecturally superior to other forms of aid.
People in need are great at knowing what they need, far better than any nonprofit “expert” or government bureaucrat. For example, if someone needs a car repair and the aid program provides food stamps, they must launder their food stamps to get the cash for their car repair. Basic income empowers people with liquid aid.
We are building a platform to take on poverty in America.
We will publish “The Logical Foundation’s Basic Income NetPlatform work Whitepaper” when ready. If we can reach scale, this system will enable us to unleash the massive anti-poverty potential of basic income.
