Its Basic (2023) Tribeca 2023

A look at the notion of guaranteed income. Floated for years as a way of taking care of people by giving no strings attached money to people every month, it helped sink Andrew Yang’s Presidential run in 2016. However the practice which went into practice during covid was found to be beneficial and is now being seriously considered by many governments as a way of easing of social programs since the slight bump up in money ends up cutting their cost.

This is a very good film on a very important subject. The truth of the matter is the film’s no nonsense discussion makes clear what a good idea this is. It also makes it very hard to really discuss or critique the film  since the arguments it presents are so clear that there is nothing to say since the film does exactly what it should.

This is definitely worth a look.
