Guaranteed Income (GI) is usually defined as an income provided by a government to all adult members of a given nation at a uniform, fixed level, and at regular intervals.
GI as public policy is typically characterized as a socio-economic right of an individual, or an entitlement provided by the legitimate institutions of a given polity. Many authors have supported GI on the grounds that it is a ‘human’ or ‘natural’ right, or some other variation of the basic rights argument.
