Citizen Income

Fight poverty.

Citizen Income is an initiative aimed at providing a basic income to everyone, ensuring access to basic necessities of life. The goal is to eradicate poverty and allow individuals to flourish. The idea is straightforward: a monthly allowance, sufficient to cover essential expenses, with no strings attached. There is no need to justify the use of the funds or prove eligibility, and no more need for specialized assistance programs. Citizen Income also provides an additional allowance for seniors, the unemployed, and those who are unable to work. The initiative aims to provide every citizen with financial security and the opportunity to lead a dignified life, free from the burden of financial insecurity.

Global impact.

As an organization, our mission is to establish a world where individuals, irrespective of their location, have access to a basic income. We firmly believe that this fundamental income can be a catalyst for real and sustained change for people worldwide. We hold the conviction that one of the most significant benefits of basic income is that it allows individuals to purchase things they need, instead of relying on so called experts to tell them what they need. People will make wise financial decisions. At the heart of our mission is the belief in the power of basic income to effect real change and promote financial stability for people globally.

"Lazy, poor people".

There's this old idea that poor people are just lazy and that giving them a Universal Basic Income would mean they would never want to work. But scientists have actually looked into this and found out that it's not true. A medical journal called the Lancet said that when the poor get free cash with no strings attached, they actually tend to work harder. Poverty is not due to a lack of character but a lack of cash, and a guaranteed basic income could unleash the energy and talent of people living in poverty. Universal Basic Income would enhance individual quality of life by removing the necessity to work for money and allow workers to draw attention to poorly paid but socially useful jobs.

Free Money.

The idea of universal basic income has been proposed by some of history's most influential thinkers. In 1516, Thomas More included the concept in his book Utopia, which has since inspired countless economists and philosophers, including Nobel Prize winners. Proponents of universal basic income come from across the political spectrum, including the founders of neoliberal thought, Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. In fact, Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted in 1948, recognizes the importance of economic security and promises that one day, universal basic income will become a reality. The concept has gained increasing attention in recent years as a way to combat poverty and inequality and provide financial stability to individuals and communities.

"Let's look at the numbers. Eradicating poverty in the U.S would cost only $175 billion, less than 1% of GDP. That's roughly a quarter of U.S military spending. Winning the way on poverty would be a bargain compared to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which a Harvard study estimated would have cost us a staggering $4 - $6 trillion. As a matter of fact, all the world's developed countries had it within their means to wipe out poverty years ago."

A note from our founder.

Dear friends, I am excited to announce the launch of our new charity, Citizen Income, which aims to support the notion of universal basic income for everyone. As a startup entrepreneur, I have seen firsthand the importance of financial security and stability for individuals and families. Unfortunately, many people are unable to achieve this due to a lack of access to resources and opportunities. This is why we believe that universal basic income is a crucial solution to help combat poverty and inequality. Our mission is to promote awareness and education about universal basic income and its potential to create a more equitable and just society. We will be partnering with organizations and individuals who share our vision to provide support and resources to those in need. We believe that every citizen deserves the opportunity to live a dignified life, free from the stress and worry of financial insecurity. Through Citizen Income, we hope to make this a reality for everyone. Thank you for your support in helping us make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities.
