The Adam Smith Institute: apparently even this bunch of head-bangers gets it about basic income. They stopped gazing at their Ronald Reagan bobblehead long enough recently to write a report into what a good thing it is to level the playing field for real. These guys are major right wing cowboys. They would have provided intellectual support for such things as privatizing British Rail back in the day and for putting meters on daylight, mother’s milk and friendship. The point is not to be put off basic income when somebody objects to it from the right.
