The province of Ontario in Canada is going to try a basic income program.  Hat tip, Charles Davis on Twitter. 

While we're waiting for it in the U.S., why not make the U.S. welfare system more like a UBI? (Niskanen Center posting by Samuel Hammond.)

Charles Murray defends the UBI. (Eight minute, 26 second podcast from Cato Institute, available as MP3 download.) Murray this year published an updated version of his book on the subject, In Our Hands.
