Mr. Straight,

As an amateur economist and historian, I appreciate your essay. You have great insight into the precariat world. I wish you well.

I believe in a universal basic income; and fully expect that its detrimental aspects could be mitigated by capable people; but have little hope that it will somehow materialize in this country anytime soon, if ever. Given that national intent to further enrich the top 1% leaves no room for empathy, social consciousness or economic justice.

I also appreciate the follow. Thank you.
