Town to pay $2500 a month to it's residents...for doing nothing!

Residents of Rheinau, Switzerland, plan to introduce a basic income system that pays residents $2,500 a month...for doing nothing!  How do they expect that to work?  The decision comes two years after a proposal for a nationwide unconditional state stipend in Switzerland failed to pass in a national vote.  The plan ensures participants will receive a basic monthly income based on their age, ranging from $640 per month for under 18 year-olds to $2,500 per month for those over age 25.  Spain and Canada have tried similar plans before.  Hear the conversation we had this morning on Van and Bonnie.
