Finland is preparing to give every citizen a monthly stipend and shut down its welfare bureaucracy. Leaving the spending choices up to the people. This must make the far-left crazy.
So, if you spend all your money on vodka, cigarettes and lotto tickets, too bad. An interesting blend of socialism and libertarianism. This will save the country billions in admin and compliance costs if it works. A brilliant idea, really. I hope the government there has the guts to not give in if the people want more. It would never fly in the US as the cuts to the government bureaucracy would have the federal unions rioting in the streets, despite the fact that this would be a huge boost to the economy.
