Petitions for any type of BasicIncome or HelicopterMoney

This should be an overview of all petitions in Europe and beyond demanding some kind of income, Basic Income, Helicopter Money, Citizens Dividend, Corona Allowance, etc

NOTE: many actions for a “basic income” are not about ‘Basic Income -UBI’ as referred below. They mostly have one or more conditions which have to be met to get the allowance. Like only for a period of time during corona, the state of people’s work, independend entrepreneurs, not high enough, etc.

An Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) is an income unconditionally granted to all members of a political community on an individual basis, without means test or work requirement. Unlike existing minimum income schemes in some countries, UBI is universal, individual, unconditional, and high enough to ensure an existence in dignity and participation in society.

How much is high enough?

  • People at risk of poverty or social exclusion:  poverty threshold  is 60% of median equivalised income per country:

  • By default the table shows an amount in “real” euros. A better way is to show PPS . this is Purchase Power Standard – also euros but “converted” as there was no price level differences between EU members.
    So if you see the PPS data then you see that this 60% of median equivalised income has different purchase power in different countries. This is the weak point of this 60%.
    In this table you see a little blue + near the “Currency” dropdown list. Click on this. A dialog window opens, there check PPS additionaly and then button Update (upper right). You can now choose between EURO an PPS.
