This article says so much of what I’ve been thinking and jotting down in my notepad over the last year. It’s bitter sweet seeing the frustration coming to a head, as it needs to get to a point where people will be more open to change, typically. JAMS and JAMStand aims to solve these problems but there’s a lot of questions remaining. Hopefully others are up for discussions,
Does anyone here think that a UBI would be a sensible solution for creatives?
The creative process is different for everyone but I know in my experience it takes time for my mind to wander and often a decent amount of down time. That may sound lazy but it’s a means to an end and in that end, people enjoy that art the most. Think of how timeless some art is but it’s often not considered how that piece came to be and I bet a majority of the time it’s somewhere in between an intense or novel human experience, boring, and/or daydreaming.
How does a UBI specific currency have and maintain its value? Do you only allow purchase of goods in that currency exclusively and let the market figure out the value?
Having a separate speculative token or a algorithmically adjusted stable token is one way to come at paying a far more competitive streaming payout on a pay per play basis, aside from a possible dedicated UBI.
I can’t wait for companies like Spotify or Apple Music be disrupted. We’ll be a part of that, hopefully a big one.
