What is Universal Basic Income?
Every citizen deserves a basic income so they can share in their country’s wealth. Pilot projects around the world show that when governments give people an unconditional basic income in the vicinity of £500 a month, the vast majority use that money wisely to improve their own lives, care for family, start or support local businesses and generally add to the economic health of their community.

Money Does Grow On Trees
The simple truth is that money is created by banks, when they double ledger a new loan as debt. Over 90% of the world’s money is made up of this debt!

It’s time for universal basic income – it’s time to shake that money tree!
