  • Hey Dan here and this video is going to be a little different than normal

  • because we're going to talk about politics. Now if you're a fan of the

  • channel you know my mission here is to help you become the best version of

  • yourself all while creating the most awesome life possible for you and those

  • you love it's a bit of a mouthful, right? So usually I'm not talking about

  • politics in fact I avoid it at all costs but I did want to talk about universal

  • basic income because I think it's a really interesting concept. I was

  • listening to a podcast the other day with an American presidential candidate

  • Andrew Yang and he really is focused on universal basic income and this concept

  • if it's new to you is essentially that within a country - or I suppose one day it

  • could be the world - everybody gets a certain amount of money every month the

  • proposed amount I think he was talking about is a thousand dollars a month

  • some countries have already been experimenting with this including I

  • think a city in my home country of Canada was experimenting with it so

  • different places give different amounts but the whole concept is you get that

  • money no matter what so if you were on social benefits before you'd get the

  • money instead of that but if you're working you still get that money and one

  • of the reasons this is coming up more and more now is because of automation

  • there's going to be less jobs at least that's what we keep hearing right

  • originally when computers came out everyone said people will work less

  • because the computers will do everything and now people work longer hours than

  • ever so well I am a little resistant to that just looking at the trends

  • throughout history there's definitely a strong likelihood that with automation a

  • lot of jobs are going to go away and I'm actually going to film another video on

  • that in terms of the sorts of businesses and jobs that I think are safest in

  • terms of automation and outsourcing to lower-cost countries and the sorts of

  • jobs and careers that you should probably avoid at this point in history

  • so back to universal basic income the concept is that if people don't have

  • jobs there's going to be an issue and in theory with robots we shouldn't all need

  • to work nearly as much right sort of like some countries where they have a

  • lot of oil the citizens just get free things because they're like we all own

  • this land I mean that's kind of the concept of a government is collectively

  • you some way you benefit from the country

  • you're in it kind of belongs to everyone and so that's part of the concept of

  • universal basic income is like this country is doing really well you're all

  • getting something for it and do with it what you will right so what are the

  • first things that comes up with the universal basic income is the concept of

  • motivation is if you just give people money are they gonna sit around and play

  • xbox until they die of starvation because they forget to eat or like what

  • would happen with people's motivation this is where I'm really interested in

  • it is thinking about the motivation concept and I want you in the comments

  • below to let me know what you think about this you might even want to pause

  • it now and let me know what you think before you hear what I think about it.

  • The way I've heard people talk about this is if someone is getting their

  • basic needs met so in the case of the United States they were saying a

  • thousand dollars right that will vary by country it's a fairly low income for the

  • United States but your basic rent could be paid depending on where you're living

  • and your basic expenses are covered so the way a lot of people were making this

  • out is if that's paid people will have less motivation to work why would you go

  • I heard someone say why would you go and work for $800 a month when you're

  • already getting $1,000 free it just you'd lose your motivation that didn't

  • make sense to me because I think of when I was a kid right I had my basic bills

  • covered basically being a kid is like universal basic income you don't have to

  • pay rent your basic food is covered like your living expenses would be covered

  • and I had a paper route from the age of 10 like the mid the day I could get a

  • paper route I got one then I got a second one then I did babysitting then I

  • did all these little businesses and what did I do with that money I bought a Sega

  • Genesis I bought Warhammer if anyone knows what Warhammer is - shut out - and I

  • spend it on all sorts of things now probably I should have saved it but I

  • bought fun things and in a way if everyone had universal basic income all

  • the extra money people would earn on sort of the lower income level would be

  • disposable income I think that's a lot more motivating if I had to go to work

  • 40 hours a week just to pay my bills just to pay for my food I probably be

  • more likely to just say I'm not gonna work at all I'm just gonna go like live

  • on a beach or in a forest somewhere or something but if

  • every dollar you're earning is going towards like trips or buying stuff you

  • like or going out with your friends if anything wouldn't you have more

  • motivation to get a job or to work harder or do something else now I know

  • that for some people and in some stages of life if your basic needs are met you

  • lose a lot of motivation I've definitely been this way before where I got used at

  • a certain point in my life where I was so broke I got used to just needing

  • money to survive and then when my income got past that point sort of lost some

  • motivation temporarily of like well why do I need to keep you know do work my

  • bills are paid why would I do more so I definitely get that in the short term

  • that can happen where if your basic needs are met you lose the motivation to

  • keep working but I think after a few months of that most people would get

  • their motivation back where they'd say all right well I like doing things so

  • I'm gonna go do things maybe that's to start a business maybe it's to become a

  • freelancer or do something more creative for extra money but also something you

  • really enjoy I think most people in the right environment - I'm going to discuss

  • what I think the right environment is - would end up wanting to be productive I

  • think for most of us we are wired to be productive we want to do things and

  • given our basic bills being paid maybe for the first few months we'd sit around

  • but that would get uncomfortable like I think a lot of us we have a couple days

  • of like lazing around if we've been working hard and then you're like I want

  • to do stuff I want like the world has so many things to see so much to do so many

  • things I want to make I want to go and do that and I know that's not everyone

  • but I do think most human beings want to be productive and it's a small group

  • that are sort of leeches that would rather just sit around and do nothing

  • now I mentioned the right environment I think this is so so important if we're

  • going to look at a concept like universal basic income a lot of

  • companies now their entire business is based on the attention economy meaning

  • steal your attention they get money companies like Facebook that's it that's

  • what they care about keep your eyes on the site they don't care if they're

  • manipulating you if being on the newsfeed and looking at everyone else is

  • hurting your self-esteem or killing your motivation

  • they don't care in fact they engineer it so that it can be addicting to check

  • whether you get a message or not I've heard that they have a slight delay

  • before it lights up like new friend new message because then you land on the

  • site anyway so I have a new friend and it becomes more addicting that way this

  • can be a problem because if you're at home and you don't have anything to do

  • because you have universal basic income and it's the 1930s you're gonna walk

  • around you're gonna go think you're gonna read some books you're gonna talk

  • to friends and eventually you're gonna be like yeah I know what I want to do

  • now I know what I want to create but in 2019 it is extremely difficult to keep

  • that freedom of thought so someone who does have a universal basic income is

  • gonna be like I think I'm gonna start a business ooh new castle guard five years

  • later right and I don't know if castle guards a game but you know these stupid

  • games that are just highly addictive and they're constantly advertised to just

  • steal your money - I don't feel very good about them if you might have gathered if

  • that is the circumstance I think it could be very dangerous to have people's

  • basic bills paid so if that is the environment for people I do think

  • Universal basic income could be very dangerous

  • because there is not going to be that boredom that leads people to want to be

  • productive and creative that boredom will be filled in with very low level

  • very unsatisfying activities but that ultimately do fill in the time I want to

  • know below in the comments what do you think about universal basic income as a

  • concept and do you think that people naturally want to be productive and to

  • create things or do people naturally want to be lazy and what I think is best

  • here answer for yourself don't answer for other people because we have a

  • tendency and this has actually been proven to assume sort of we're different

  • and may be better so for the sake of this little research experiment just

  • tell me about yourself if you were receiving universal basic income what do

  • you think would change in your life in terms of your motivation and what you'd

  • actually get done leave that below in the comments. If you're not yet a

  • subscriber to the channel hit that subscribe button hit the bell I publish

  • new videos every Sunday Tuesday and Thursday and I'd love to have you as

  • part of our community see you in the next video! Thanks for watching and have

  • an awesome day!
