  • Hi, I'm Anthony Galli and Bernie Sanders was asked recently

  • if he supported a Universal Basic Income and here was his response...

  • I understand that idea and I have a better idea… I think in a nation in which there

  • is so much work to be donejust think about itYou got an infrastructure which is crumbling,

  • we can put millions of people to work doing that, transforming our energy system, in terms

  • of weatherizing homes all over this country, building a more efficient transportation system,

  • putting more money into wind and solar and other sustainable technologies we can create

  • millions of jobs doing that. You want a world-class child care center? You need well-educated,

  • well-trained, well-paid child care workers. We need more doctors in rural areas and in

  • urban areas we need more nurses. We have a dental crisis all over this country. We need

  • to train dentists and get them out there. We need more social workers. You want to reform

  • our criminal justice system? You are gonna need people to start working with prisoners.

  • You want kids not dropping out of high school? You need mentors working with them. There

  • is an enormous amount of work to be done and what we believe in is guaranteeing a job in

  • this country to anybody who is prepared to work. I think that's the better approach!

  • I think Bernie is 50% correct. As I said in a previous videoAS LONG AS THERE ARE PROBLEMS

  • IN THE WORLD THERE IS A JOB TO BE DONE. Bernie highlighted some of those problems and for

  • fun I'll throw a few more into the mix: We have HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people illegally

  • crossing the border between legal ports of entry every year. Let's hire thousands

  • of more border patrol agents. We have courts that are so backed up by legal cases that

  • defense attorneys often pressure their clients to take plea deals.

  • Let's hire more judges so our legal system can be more just. We have police officers who are

  • overworked and undertrained, especially in our inner cities. Let's hire more police.

  • We have cities covered in rust, graffiti, and liter. Let's put people to work beautifying

  • our cities through the use of artwork and cleanup and reimagining unused public spaces.

  • Who will rule the world depends upon who will win the AI arms race between the United States

  • and China. We MUST train and hire more engineers. Let's also explore space! This alone has

  • the potential to create as many jobs as there are stars. => Those are just a few ideas.

  • I welcome you to include more in the comments if you'd like. And don't get me wrong, I've

  • been writing for years about the threat automation presents to labor, but let's not ignore

  • the problems right under our noses by becoming fixated on the horizon. Now where I disagree

  • with Bernie is on a “Job Guarantee”. The idea of a Job Guarantee is that it aims to

  • => create full employment and price stability, by having the state promise to hire unemployed

  • workers as an employer of last resort. => Now on paper this may sound like a good idea,

  • but in reality it would destroy our economy. And here's whyThe American political

  • left would NOT use the federal government strictly as an ELR. No, no, no. You could

  • be guarding a garbage can and Bernie Sanders would want to pay you a “living wage

  • plus benefits. According to his Jobs-for-All plan, “Sanders wants the government to provide

  • guaranteed jobs at $15 an hour, plus benefits.” Private companies wouldn't be able to compete

  • with such a cushy offer from the federal government. Just look at the math: 44% of Americans make

  • under $15 an hour. 44%! This means it would be in the economic self-interest of over 50

  • million Americans to line up for a government job. Businesses will therefore be forced to

  • dramatically increase their pay in order to keep their workers from leaving to go work

  • for the government, but labor is already the largest cost for business with 50% of businesses

  • going out of business in their first 5 years. And the first businesses to close won't

  • be Walmart and Amazon as some on the left would like to imagine. Instead it will be

  • Mom & Pop shops and startups. There is a reason why Walmart ACTIVELY lobbies for a higher

  • minimum wage and it's because they know it kills their competition. You see big business

  • loves big government. The 1% love the 1%. So if Bernie gets his way we'll all live

  • like small cogs working for a highly inefficient government bureaucracy or a highly inefficient

  • corporate monopoly. Then after the small fish die a lot of the big fish will eventually

  • leave/die too. => The CycleBusinesses close/move-abroad => Government hires => Taxes rise => Businesses

  • close/move-abroad => Government hires => Taxes rise => etc… (eventually

  • economic collapse) => Not to mention that as more and more of the labor force is made

  • up of government workers they'd have more and more political leverage to demand even

  • higher pay. It's like if you worked for a business where you had the ability to vote

  • for your boss. You'd end up with a boss who expects little and pays a lot. Such a

  • business would quickly go out of business, but since we are talking about the government

  • they don't have to worry about that problem. I believe a far more practical solution than

  • a guaranteed income or guaranteed job is for the government to focus on keeping unemployment

  • below 5% — when it rises: cut taxes/increase spendingwhen it drops: increase taxes/cut

  • spending. Economists think in terms of percentages. Voters prefer absolutes.

  • But if theseguaranteeswere so smart then why haven't they been implemented by

  • the socialist Meccas, such as Norway and Sweden? Or why weren't they implemented long ago?

  • Inequality is not new. In fact it is the historical norm. It's because they aren't actually

  • smart proposals, but are the sort of policy proposals that sound smart to an ever-growing

  • number of ignorant voters who can't even name the 3 branches of government and yet

  • have the arrogance to vote for who gets to sit in those branches. We live in a country

  • where theright to voteoutweighs the responsibility to get informed first, which

  • means if you're a politician all you have to do is promise FREE and GUARANTEED and you'll

  • be labeled a “visionaryby a media that panders to the lowest common denominator.
