What Does A SBI Mean For Us? Shared Growth

The whole idea of a shared base income (the SBI, a universal income funded by a half share of all earnings) is to enable everyone to grow, to fulfil their potential. So the SBI encourages excellence in what we do, it encourages us to contribute at what we're best at, because that best realises who we are.

Humans (also known as 'homo sapiens' or 'wise men' to translate) are also mind-centric, we try to understand how things work in order to learn and to adapt and form ideas on how best to use and do things. The ideas on how to use, shape and form things are the ideas that enable us to do more. These are the ideas that form new techniques and new technology, and technology is the driver of economic growth. It is why, for the last 250 years or so, we've had economic growth of 2 percent per year on average; whereas, for the last 2 million years or so before that (when forms of primitive humans first evolved) economic growth had been virtually zero.

A true SBI should put us on a new level of growth, above the 2 per cent average. And it should enable the benefits of that growth to be shared with everyone, which is why the greater growth happens.
