  • Finland Social Experiment

    As a result of a Facebook comment this morning I have been thinking more about his Capitalism vs Socialism analogy: basically, Capitalism is good and Socialism is jamming “whatever” down the throats of unwilling constituents. A shortsighted, false view in my opinion.

    Later in the morning, I came across this study conducted in Finland and it grabbed my attention because of the mornings response I made to the post on Facebook to which I referred above. I will present some data below that may stimulate an interest.

    The link to the Finnish social experiment study is here. I do not know how long the link will last but I would almost bet this site will last longer than the link. Therefore, I will add some of the text in the block below.

    “Finland basic income trial left people ‘happier but jobless’: This is seen as increasingly important in the age of automation – that is, put very simply, as robots take people’s jobs.”
