This may be a sign to the Silicon Valley titans who believe that there should be a minimum Universal Base Income.
A scheme (in the British sense) to provide one man a minimum income via crowdfunding ran out of steam in its third year (!) and is being abandoned.
The guaranteed income program, organized by the Groningen Foundation MIES (Society for Innovation of Economy and Society), “was designed to see how people’s lives were changed by not having to worry about earning an income.”
But, apparently, people grew tired to giving money away to someone else for no good (read, charitable?) reason.
