Is a Citizen’s Income Politically Feasible?

Because a Citizen’s Income might take longer than a single parliament to legislate and implement, all-party support will be required. The chapter finds that every mainstream ideology can and does generate arguments for a Citizen’s Income. The same arguments against a Citizen’s Income can be found generated both in theory and in practice by most of the mainstream political ideologies. This suggests that arguments against Citizen’s Income are not closely related to the core positions of mainstream political ideologies, and that they are psychological rather than political. This suggests that a Citizen’s Income could be politically feasible. The chapter warns that advocacy for Citizen’s Income by a minority political party might make more significant political feasibility more difficult to achieve.
