Why UBI? Let These Famous People Explain.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote in his 1967 book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? Only a year later, King was assassinated.
Amazingly, the U.S. had been on the verge of passing a form of universal basic income in 1969 under President Richard Nixon, but the initiative fell apart after squabbles in congress. The hopes of instituting UBI haven’t gone away, however, and were brought into the mainstream by 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang.
At Anatha, we’ve taken another path to bring universal basic income to reality: creating a regenerative economy with decentralized finance that distributes wealth to all participants. The Anatha network creates a bottom-up UBI that is working to end global poverty.
