I would like to introduce UBI, almost like what Brasil did for people who were at the bottom of income totem pole.Years ago the Brasil government told those people to open a bank account, and monthly the Brasil deposited money in their account, further the Brasil government made agreements with grocery stores that those people could buy food for discount prices. The result of this was Brasil left the bottom of poverty index worldwide and passed a lot of countries. With the left over money these people bought paint to repaint their houses, repaired their houses and did a lot of other things to improve their living accommodations. This all give industry a boost in a variety of ways, like farmers increased their deliveries in fresh food, increase of variety of food in grocery stores and job opportunities. Further the Brasil government opened restaurants where you could have breakfast and lunches for a couple of dollars (more job opportunities). The restaurant were serving health food and were open for every one.
