    This is going to be interesting. This is just a trial to see what happens. This city is about 30 minutes from me and I applaud them trying out various things to reduce poverty and the stress it brings.

    "A team of independent researchers will pick 100 people to receive the money. The purpose is to study how an extra $500 a month impacts people’s health and stress level. Researchers are also looking to see if people feel financially secure."

    This will end up a failure just like Finland's program.

    And the information will indicate that the program is a failure. What do you think the study is supposed to do? It's to test the efficacy of giving people free money. We have truckloads of empirical evidence already that doing so is an Epic Fail. Hence, I am quite confident in my prediction that this time things will not be different.

    Theres no failure unless no one takes the money. Theres no success unless they get some data. Its an information gathering study.

    Oh Jeebus. Fish in a barrel time.

    It's not a success if people use the money to:
    - Abuse drugs and/or alcohol
    - Increase their lifestyle to a level which requires continuation of the free money in perpetuity
    - Cut back on doing productive work so it is a $0 net cash flow impact
    - Gamble it away
    - Consume crap junk food like hot cheetohs

    For starters.
