Basic income 26

Basic income is very controversial and there are many different versions of it, and the different theories and research that have come out. Most research looks at it as a way to increase the standard of living, for instance by giving families a bit of extra cash.

While many people think it sounds bad, it may actually be a very good idea - with good results. It has been shown that giving people money to buy things they want is better for their mental health than no money at all.

'You're basically giving them the freedom to focus on something else or take a break'

The research found that spending three hours a day working on something rather than eating a meal made for less stress.

And it's not just about money either. After the study, participants were found to find their work more satisfactory and that their day was better.
