Trickle up economics works!

Residents of Stockton, Calif., who received $500 a month from a first-of-its-kind guaranteed-income program were more likely to find full-time jobs, be happy and stay healthy, according to a year-long study published Wednesday.
Supporters of universal income programs which provide regular, unconditional payments from the government to people say the findings should dispel common criticisms of the idea, such as that money with no strings attached disincentivizes people to work or encourages them to spend it on drugs and alcohol. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/03/03/stockton-universal-basic-income/
