@garbados@davidak@aral your housing costs should be anything *in excess of* some generously-set expected-usage: water, power etc. Rent... that's a trickier Q, I think rents should be locked from increasing when UBI is deployed, starting several months ahead to reduce (it won't prevent) rent gouging. UBI should be scaled to local Cost Of Living - this incorporates Rent, basic food costs, and enough discretionary funds to prevent stagnation
@garbados@davidak@aral if local rent is $700 averaged over a munizone, with little variation, then local UBI can account for that. what gets harder is when there's a large variation in a munizone in relatively short distances, ex from $500 to $1200.
