Abstract

Universal Basic Income may be a useful policy proposal for poverty alleviation and welfare modernization. If automation-caused mass unemployment becomes reality, however, government should instead help citizens transition to new jobs by improving retraining programs and income insurance.

Keywords: automation, universal basic income, social safety net
