What will be the result of the technological disruption on the global employment, in the next 10 years, on a capitalist bases??
What will be the influence of technological development on the global surplus value of capitalist production??

Vanderbeke Roland,

Read the entire publication, Chapters 1 through 14.

Hi Kartik,
Are you taking action to get this proposal in front of the Trump transition team?

Hi James,

I would certainly like to, but don't have a direct contact there. Sending it cold would get lost within thousands of letters..

Hi KG,

I love your whitepaper. You've clearly sunk a ton of time and effort into this and it shows. Your solution is elegant and if I had a steady check coming in, I would relax and focus on other ventures (making more contributions to ATOM.)

I don't intend to be spammy (not my intent), but if someone could please answer my question in this instance, I'd really appreciate it:

Again, great stuff!

CG524,

Yes! That is exactly the idea. Too many people assume the DUES will kill incentives, but I claim it will increase it, since the income tax is 0%, and the tailwind behind all technology startups would be higher.

Is a good read, might be worth getting in touch with the authors? They are acceleration aware guys who share many of your ideas.

I would also suggest Peter Diamandis, if you havent already contacted him. He is involved in everything to do with futurism and abundance. \

I'm trying to spread the idea amongst various libertarian minded people here in my country.

Interesting thread about UBI at Instapundit today:
https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/254437/#respond

Not a single mention about this concept over there- and remember these readers are a far above average slice of the internet.

Food for thought

peter Diamandis actually is favourable to the UBI idea.

I have been hearing more and more about the general idea of UBI in the mainstream chatterings, however people seem stuck in the idea that taxation is needed to fund it. The DUES is much better .

Kartik Gada

Idiocrates,

Thanks. The thing is, I am having trouble getting a fair hearing from Singularity U, despite my material being more advanced than most of theirs. I will get there, but at the moment they seem long on steep fees and light on new ideas..

Idiocraties

A less than ideal place to post/contactmay be here? They have a forum, and so may expose the ATOM to multiple eyeballs.

Kartik,
What's the latest with the video competition?
It seems to me that a better approach might be to employ your own advice to individuals (such as here: http://atom.singularity2050.com/11-implementation-of-the-atom-age-for-individuals.html ) and crowdfund/kickstart it yourself, no?

Kartik Gada

James Deus,

It will be unveiled shortly.

Crowdfunding is one avenue I may pursue, but it is extremely difficult to generate money for a prize via crowdfunding.
