@garbados @aral You mean landlords responding to the inevitable inflation caused by a UBI? I suppose you could then put in price controls on rent. And after that figure out how to address the resulting housing shortages.
That's the problem with economics: when you mess with markets it leads to a "give a mouse a cookie" kind of situation.
That's not to say don't ever do it. I expect we'll end up with a UBI, and now sooner rather than later. But the consequences are predictable.
