Finland is considering a radical plan to give everybody free money
Basic income — the concept of giving people money with no strings attached— is having anything but a basic year. Three months ago, the Dutch city of Utrecht announced it would launch a program to give people on welfare unconditional free money. The plan was so popular that it has spread to more than two dozen Dutch towns. Now Finland wants in on the action. The big difference: the country wants to give money to everybody, not just people on welfare.
