Basic Income AMA Series: I'm Karl Widerquist, co-chair of the Basic Income Earth Network and author of "Freedom as the Power to Say No," AMA.
I have written and worked for Basic Income for more than 15 years. I have two doctorates, one in economics, one in political theory. I have written more than 30 articles, many of them about basic income. And I have written or edited six books including "Independence, Propertylessness, and Basic Income: A Theory of Freedom as the Power to Say No." I have written the U.S. Basic Income Guarantee Network's NewFlash since 1999, and I am one of the founding editors of Basic Income News (binews.org). I helped to organize BIEN's AMA series, which will have 20 AMAs on a wide variety of topics all this week. We're doing this on the occasion of the 7th international Basic Income Week.

I'm stepping away for a few hours, but if people have more questions and comments, I'll check them when I can. I'll try to respond to everything. Thanks a lot. I learned a lot.
