There’s something between the lines here…I agree with the author’s premise that fiscal policy to deal with the pandemic could lead to a Universal Basic Income but he muddies the waters when he turns philosophical and wonders about the future of capitalism.

That’s what I want to know… how to present and package an effective safety net in a package that Republicans could support.
