Lack Of Universal Basic Income Causes 80% Of Crime In America

Poverty, Family Conditions and Unemployment are among the top causes of crime in America today, a Yang-type Universal Basic Income (Freedom Dividend) could solve them rapidly.


The main cause of poverty in the United States is the lack of cash, which makes people stressful, resulting in lower IQ and therefore, bad decision-making and often, criminal activity.

Yang’s Freedom Dividend policy would almost eliminate poverty by solving its main cause by putting $1.000 a month into everyone’s pocket as a right of citizenship.

Family Conditions

Family Conditions are determining people’s behavior at some level. If there are bad conditions in a household, there is a high chance that its a member are negatively impacted and more likely to develop criminal behavior.

The Freedom Dividend would dramatically improve a household’s economic situation and therefore reduce the chance of its members contributing to lawlessness.


“Andrew Yang wants to implement the Freedom Dividend because we are experiencing the greatest technological shift the world has ever seen. By 2015, automation had already destroyed four million manufacturing jobs, and the smartest people in the world now predict that a third of all working Americans will lose their job to automation in the next 12 years. Our current policies are not equipped to handle this crisis. Even our most forward-thinking politicians are unprepared.

As technology improves, workers will be able to stop doing the most dangerous, repetitive, and boring jobs. This should excite us, but if Americans have no source of income—no ability to pay for groceries, buy homes, save for education, or start families with confidence—then the future could be very dark. Our labor participation rate now is only 62.7% – lower than it has been in decades, with 1 out of 5 working-age men currently out of the workforce. This will get much worse as self-driving cars and other technologies come online.

The Freedom Dividend—funded by a simple Value Added Tax—would guarantee that all Americans benefit from automation, not just big companies. The Freedom Dividend would provide money to cover the basics for Americans while enabling us to look for a better job, start our own business, go back to school, take care of our loved ones or work towards our next opportunity.”, Yang’s website mentions.

Conclusion: Andrew Yang’s Freedom Dividend could reduce or even end mass crime in America for many decades to come.
