■Think about "Basic income benefit system"!
Last Saturday (2017.04.29), I had an opportunity to hear directly from Mr.Schmidt who was one of the leaders of the movement of the "basic income benefit system" for Swiss referendum.
Last year (2016)) on June 5th, the "unconditional basic income" was rejected by the Swiss referendum against 73.6%, but it won 23.1% of votes.
The "unconditional basic income benefit system" that Mr.Schmidt and all have made a referendum is a system in which the government gives the minimum basic revenue to all 8 million Swiss citizens without literally taking conditions.
Regarding the amount of the minimum basic income, all major mass-medias gave concrete figures like as "2500 Swiss francs (about 270,000 yen) monthly for adults and 625 Swiss francs (about 68,000 yen) for minors".
But Mr.Schmidt denied that such a specific amount of income was raised in the referendum.
If the amount of the minimum basic income is correct, it is certain that the annual budget for Switzerland is over 20 billion of SFr. (About 22.7 trillion yen),as the Swiss government says.
For Switzerland with a total gross national product of $ 646.2 billion of dollars (about 70 trillion yen) (2013), the basic income budget of 22.7 trillion of yen won't possible to be created by the "change of social welfare system etc." as Mr.Schmidt and all claim.
Mr.Schmidt also emphasized that the introduction of the "unconditional basic income" is not for the "poverty eradication".
His idea is very philosophical as follows.
"Humans usually earn income by helping others, not working for money."
If the "unconditional basic income" is introduced, people can regain the original appearance of working to help others without having to work for money."
What I said to Schmidt is the following.
"The unconditional basic income will be possible only in Switzerland where the average annual income of one Swiss citizen is so hight as 7 million of yen and there is not so much difference between rich and poor. "
"It will be impossible to intoroduce the unconditional basic income in Japan,in the United States, in EU countries and in the other countries where the gap between rich and poor is rapidly expanding. "
"What we should do in Japan for example will be that for the purpose of "eradicating poverty", the government pay the difference between the annual income of 2.4 million of yen and the annual income less than 2.4million of yen for housewives and unemployed people with zero annual income and for irregular workers and senior citizens."
New! My opinion!
1.The first stage of the "Basic income benefit system" should be introduced in all countries around the world with the condition for eradicating poverty."
New!2.The funds of "basic income benefit system" will be sufficiently covered bythe following four policies.
①To abolish the following four "credit creation privileges" in each country.
1)"Issue right of Currency" monopolized by the Central Bank
2)"Fraud system to make money from nothing = reserve deposit system" monopolized by the private banks.
3)"Issue right of Government bonds" monopolized by the government
4)Bank and rich" profit "Interest" forever profitable to banks and rich people.
②To transfer all rights of decision and management of the Central Bank to the Congress by nationalizing at 100%.
③ The nationalized Central Bank uses "credit creation" for the citizens, not for the private banks.
3.When the gap between rich and poor is reduced,the "basic income" will be provided to all citizens without conditions.
▲Swiss referendum rejects "basic income"
Asahi Shimbun June 6, 2016
On the 5th in Switzerland, a national referendum was held asking whether to introduce a "basic income" system to unconditionally provide citizens with a certain amount of cash, and voting was rejected by 23.1% in favor and 76.9% against. The voter turnout was 46.3%
Introductory promoters gathered the required minimum signature of more than 100,000 signatures and made a national referendum. The promoters appealed "eradication of poverty" etc, and as for the amount to maintain a minimum life, 2,500 Swiss francs (about 270 thousand yen) against adults, 625 Swiss francs (about 68 thousand yen ) To be paid monthly.
Meanwhile, the Federal Government announced its opposing position concerned about the huge cost of "more than 208 billion Swiss francs (about 22.7 trillion yen)annually" and concern about the decline in Switzerland's economic competitiveness. Promoters insisted that it is possible to change the current social welfare system for financial resources, but the support did not spread.
