Alrenous: So bookstores think they’re obsolete, but really they’re merely mismanaged. He fixed it by using techniques at least as old as Napoleon. It’s not hard, you just have to actually want to do it.
James James: “Greenstein argued that adding a basic income on top of the existing safety net would require tax increases that are simply not politically viable.” Sounds like this guy doesn’t really understand Citizen’s Income.
