money - would not wipe my arse on it, get rid. Can an economist here detail me the pros and cons of getting rid of money entirely? my main one is someone from Chiswick saying something about incentive but thats as far as ive got

it is not so much money; you need some kind of trading medium (otherwise buying things becomes particularly tricky) but how the system is abused.  That is why I think if you really want to help people then you invest in publicly owned institutions that can reduce the cost of living; we've got a great example of this - it's called the NHS.

I wouldn't piss on money if it was on fire.

the wiping my arse on money thing reminded me how money is exactly like that tracing paper toilet paper shit I had to use as a kid so I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT WIPE MY ARSE ON IT

I wouldn't wish money on my worst enemy.

having lots of money is like having lots of pictures of the Queen in your pocket, you perverted fucks.

I'm going to propose a new rule: if you use numbers for any purpose whatsoever you're not allowed trousers, skirts and/or pants

you gotta go out naked from the waist down

After Brexit britain can redeem itself by moving to an entirely qualitative currency system.

OUT: 1s 2s demical points 4s and 8s
IN: blue, moist, oaky, wee, knackered

if moneys gone what are mental bastards at the top going to do? things arent going to immediately descend into dragging people like that bare arsed in the street to flog them until they start crying and blaming other people for things but they have to know it will get there eventually, jump off while the goings good and get out of using money before you get the bare arsed treatment

Don't complain about money when its clocks that hold all the cards

The most unbelievable thing about Star Trek including the aliens and ftl travel is that Miles O'brien joined the military

Aloe Black's I need a dollar is a better tune. Make of that what you will.

In Star Trek times incels are recognised as a distinct minority with their own culture and tradition, if one applies you gotta hire them because of the federations woke inclusivity standards.

Yes and if someone commits a space crime that isn't serious enough to warrant the brig they get sentenced to cleaning up the holodeck after them.

Quotebut you are ignoring assets and a whole range of other things that would come into play if you wanted to recoup UBI from people that were earning 60k+ which you would absolutely want to do if you didn't want to increase inequality
Regardless of whether we have UBI or not, we need to tax wealth and high incomes. £20k UBI would be largely irrelevant to this need.

Quote(this is really basic so I'm surprised this is not being considered - if I earn 60k a year, I get 18k UBI, I put 18k a year in assets because I can live on my own wage in less than years I've bought a 200k house that has appreciated in value and I'm on to the next).
If you're earning £60k a year, why aren't you already putting at least £30k into assets?

That'd be O'brien, the man is a dictionary of punishable space slurs.

The one done by Troop and Levert with Queen Latifah on it for New Jack City is ace as well.

I thought he just got 'moved sideways' to a useless cupboard. Constructive dismissal basically, but it didn't work, man's holding out for the pension, and rightly so.

Exactly but giving already rich people more disposable income allows them to garner more wealth and assets.  Is what I'm saying at least making sense now? not sure why you think 20k UBI is irrelevant to this need; it would be 100s of billions of pounds.

Just to be clear I'm not but if were then sure I could add 20k to my 30k and be a millionaire in 20 years.
