Citizen’s Dividends: Basic Income from your Share of the Commons

Mike Sandler, a member of Feasta’s climate group, writes in the Huffington Post about Cap and Dividend – a variation of Cap and Share – and Dennis Kucinich’s proposal for monetary reform, known as the NEED act. Sandler suggests that income from such measures could be used to fund a citizen’s income. He then points out that such a programme could also be funded by quantatitive easing, at least in the short term.
