Ivan sent this in. I asked him if I could reproduce it verbatim.
Are you aware of Dauphin, Manitoba, 1970’s ?? Here is some basic info:
A successful study was done in Dauphin, Manitoba, a small farming town in the middle of Canada:
” … Between 1974 and 1979, the Canadian government tested the idea of a basic income guarantee (BIG) across an entire town, giving people enough money to survive in a way that no other place in North America has before or since. For those four years—until the project was cancelled and its findings packed away—the town’s poorest residents were given monthly checks that supplemented what modest earnings they had and rewarded them for working more. And for that time, it seemed that the effects of poverty began to melt away. Doctor and hospital visits declined, mental health appeared to improve, and more teenagers completed high school. … “
It encourages participation:
” … The feared labor market fallout—that people would stop working—didn’t materialize. Part of this was by design, says Forget. “Mincome was designed in such a way that there is always an incentive to work more hours rather than less,” because every dollar received from other sources would reduce benefits by only fifty cents, whereas typical welfare programs provide no extra benefits when recipients earn money from other sources. “If you work another hour, you get to keep 50 percent of the benefit you would have gotten anyway, so you are better off working than not.”
Some recipients used the money to pay for essentials; others used it as supplementary income to purchase things that could help them increase their earning potential, like new vehicles. One major benefit of the program was a sense of security, potentially counteracting the sort of worrying that can, weigh heavily on the minds, of the poor. …”
BTW, the OPPT [One People’s Public Trust] filed away a US $5-Billion in equity per person & US $5-Billion in damages per person ….. and there is a whole lot more where that came from

Count how many zeroes there are here:
This (pic) is the bank account for the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in 1966. [There are 200 zeroes.]
ref: 135370661-Audit ASBLP-File-of-2007 UN Organisation.pdf (Google that)
(today it is listed as “unlimited” here: “209255397-WORLD BANK INFINITE-2012-final-audited-
if there are 10 Billion people, the number looks like this:
if you give 100 Billion to each of them, you multiply and this is what the result looks like:
= 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 <- 21 zeros
. . .
That was 1966 …. 200 – 21 = WHERE ARE THE MISSING 179 ZEROS?
Clearly there is enough already there to provide for every person on the planet with over 100 Billion EACH.
and they tell you to still pay taxes?
UBI for all, GLOBALLY, is definitely ‘doable’
Everything (Government and Private) is already pre-paid via the Global Collateral Accounts, read more here:
Someone check the math but I love the spirit! Thanks, Ivan!
