Default Finland plans to give every citizen 800 euros a month and scrap benefits

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...-a6762226.html

Finland's government is drawing up plans to give every one of its citizens a basic income of 800 euros (576) a month and scrap benefits altogether.
A poll commissioned by the agency planning the proposal, the Finnish Social Insurance Institute, showed 69% supported the basic income plan.
The proposal would entitle each Finn to 800 euros tax free each month, which according to Bloomberg, would cost the government 52.2 billion euros a year.
The country's government will make a final decision on the plan in November 2016.

Your post is like 90% of the article. Tiny article.

I mean really it's just a redistribution of wealth, everyone pays most of their earnings to taxes over there anyway right? Free tax free money, who would say no?

qz.com sounds horrible if i get a virus im suing you


So they're getting rid of existing benefits and doing this instead in an attempt to tackle unemployment, it seems less efficient but I'm okay with seeing how it pans out. not my country not my problem thats what I say
Plus they seem to like it and I don't have a whole helluva lot to go off of.
