Armutsbekämpfung durch Einkommensumverteilung. Zu den Zielen und Finanzierungsproblemen eines Grundeinkommens

The basic income is introduced as a concept capable of improving inadequate poverty reduction schemes, especially by removing state controls of the ability and willingness to work. The welfare system will become more independent of wage-based social security contributions. The main challenge for the basic income model is financing. However, at the core of this challenge is not the question how large amounts of money can be raised, but rather the consequences for incentive mechanisms (and production). These are the limitations of the concept.
