Brexit disagreed by Yanis Varoufakis
[Brexit] would make a bad thing [the EU] far, far worse … Monsters don’t have to win elections to be in power.
Basic Income agreed by Yanis Varoufakis
Either we are going to have a basic income that regulates this new society of ours, or we are going to have very substantial social conflicts that get far worse with xenophobia and refugees and migration and so forth.
Robot Tax disagreed by Yanis Varoufakis
Either the robot sales tax should be dropped or it should be generalized into a capital goods sales tax. But imagine the uproar against a tax on all capital goods: Woe betide those who would diminish domestic productivity and competitiveness!
Universal Basic Income should be funded by returns on capital agreed by Yanis Varoufakis
A simple policy would be to enact legislation requiring that a percentage of capital stock (shares) from every initial public offering (IPO) be channeled into a Commons Capital Depository, with the associated dividends funding a universal basic dividend
