The current situation in the world has clearly demonstrated the need for changes in the economic policies of countries. The irrational, insufficient wages of people who ensure the basic functioning of society have led to structural inequalities that must be eliminated. For many years, most of the population watched impotently as upper-level salaries rose rapidly in comparison with other salaries. With the advent of the coronavirus, we have a chance to make a difference and create a more solidary society in which profits are more evenly distributed. It is necessary to rethink the structural organization of many areas of activity. In particular, financial, namely, to consider the idea of introducing a basic income .

Today, more and more countries are turning to this concept. So, according to TASS, a program of financial support for the population was launched in Japan against the backdrop of the crisis caused by the coronavirus. Citizens of the country will receive benefits in the amount of 100,000 yen (about $930). The basic income is available to, among others, prisoners and those on death row. These payments are already made in 1388 municipalities of the country, which is 79.7% of the total. The source of the cash is a 25.6 trillion yen ($237 billion) supplementary budget for 2020, which was approved at the end of April to support the economy amid the coronavirus.

In addition to Japan, Spain will provide financial assistance to citizens, where on May 29 a law on a minimum basic income was approved. Citizens whose financial situation has worsened due to the pandemic that has swept the world can count on benefits. It is assumed that the minimum basic income will help overcome poverty 80% of the 550 thousand families living in extreme poverty. The minimum amount of payments will be from 461.5 euros per adult. This program is expected to continue on an ongoing basis.

According to analysts from various sources, the introduction of a basic income in the future can help reduce the level of stress among the population, increase the economic efficiency of citizens by increasing the level of education due to the lack of the need for quick employment, and improve the economic and sanitary situation in society.

Experiments carried out earlier in a number of countries showed, in general, a positive result. Nevertheless, if we want to survive and live happily, it is necessary to include citizens with an integral education system so that they learn to build the right relationship.

Integral education will promote understanding of the unity of the natural and social systems, a sense of the relationship of people, mutual responsibility and awareness of the importance of individual contribution to the proper functioning of society.


  1. It would be a good option to gradually abandon money, which is almost impossible to wash off dirt. In this regard, I would suggest a system of multi-level support for society without money.

    For example, an administrative unit daily monitors the required amount of everything for all its inhabitants. For today, tomorrow, etc. And determines whether there is a shortage? Or an excess? With specific actions to follow.

    Those. Is it not possible to come to a common system of self-sufficiency, both universal and multi-level? Without money. Moreover, the stimulation of each in it will be its own, arising from the social place of a person. If he works, one, if he studies, the other.

    And all that is needed is to have a society with an integral upbringing.

  2. In addition to the basic income, add an allowance for studying in the integral education system to increase motivation.
