With UBI, won’t people just watch TV and play video games? – The Tarantino Argument for Unconditional Basic Income
Whatever merit there may be in the production of goods must be entirely derivative from the advantage to be obtained by consuming them. The individual, in our society, works for profit; but the social purpose of his work lies in the consumption of what he produces… We think too much of production, and too little of consumption. One result is that we attach too little importance to enjoyment and simple happiness, and that we do not judge production by the pleasure that it gives to the consumer.
— Bertrand Russell, In Praise of Idleness
