Startups contribute to income inequality

Basic income and human dignity

As digitization progresses, our society is suffering from persistent reform bias. In addition to the socio-politically effective cushioning of the consequences of digitization, there is no overdue abolition of the discrediting Hartz IV system and the enforcement of a concentration-limiting inheritance tax. This is one of the reasons why more and more citizens feel helplessly at the mercy of unpredictable employment risks. All of this produces fears for the future, which increasingly appear as open aggression against state representatives and everything foreign.

The present book shows solutions to this problem. These are intended to reduce fears about the future and open up opportunities for an emancipatory reorganization of our working relationships. The core of such problem solutions is a holistic reform architecture for an unconditional basic income with a distribution-based tax system. It is proven that a substantial, unconditional basic income can be solidly financed by means of a solidarity-compliant tax reform. Self-determined work and humane future conditions are then quite achievable. A majority of our fellow citizens as well as the parliamentarians must, however, resolutely help get this off the ground in a foreseeable timeframe.
