The Universal Basic Income is a policy that economists started
discussing prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, building on the Basic Minimum Income
(BMI) approach. The BMI is widely used in other countries (particularly within
the European Union) to provide an income floor below for individuals and
families. While not that common in the US history, it gained some visibility in
recent years, being also proposed by one of the presidential candidates, Andrew
Yang, as a more permanent social protection measure. In response to the
economic downturn created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the BMI is now being
proposed as a temporary measure to prevent poverty and provide a much needed
safety net, during and beyond the pandemic.
