Basic Income for an Innovative Nation

Basic Income Innovation article published, and our next meetup is coming together!

In response to Malcolm Turnbull’s recent Innovation Statement and in preparation for the theme of our next Basic Income Australia meetup, I have published an article with about why implementing a Basic Income will be the best move for empowering massive innovation on a national level.

See the article here: How a universal basic income could fuel entrepreneurship

I made a few images to go with the article. They weren’t published by GeekTime in the end, but they may still be useful for social media if you want to share them:

Vinay Gupta quote about innovation

Paul Graham quote about big winner startups paying off 10,000x

So share the article. Tweet with the images (tweets with images always get more attention and interactions). Share on Reddit (relevant to /r/Australia, /r/entrepreneur, /r/startups, /r/futurology etc) and upvote. Get it out there.

Basic Income and Innovation – Sydney Meetup

Now I will start to prepare for our next meetup. We have an event created for it on; Go register for it now. Share it around. Invite people.

After the meetup I plan on writing another piece on Innovation and Basic Income which goes into more depth on exactly how a basic income will result in innovation. This piece was necessarily short on the details in order to be publishable in this sort of medium. My next piece should be published in the blog of the Basic Income Earth Network.

    To whom it may concern,

    Basic Income Platform advocates for a progressive implementation of a Basic Income worldwide.
    We believe that is just a question of time that such a scheme is
    implemented but unfortunately, hard work is being needed to convince to the establishment
    about eradicating extreme poverty and increasing the quality of life
    for the forthcoming generations. While standard political groups have a
    destructive approach to this subject believing in financing a basic
    income through fiduciary money and more debt, Basic Income Platform and
    other refreshing organisations like the Transhumanist Party or the Pirate Party have a
    different perspective of this issue. As an example of this, BIPRB (Basic Income
    Platform / Plataforma Renta Básica) has developed the only “Basic Income Manifesto” (English
    and Spanish version – the English version is open to grammar
    suggestions or corrections-) that redefines “Basic Income” in a more
    futuristic way and also opens, once and for all, alternative mechanisms to financing a Basic Income.

    BIPRB believes that “Basic Income for Australia” could be a valuable working partner, particularly to study and develop
    virtual currency models as a basic income schemes in the lucky country.

    Please, read the linked manifesto ( and think about which way or ciberplatforms can be the best channels of communication to collaborate in the future.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
