Finland Abandons Universal Basic Income Experiment After Two Years


DEBUNKED:


Quote:Finland's basic income organisers correct inaccurate media reports of trial's premature death

Finland's social insurance agency says the country's basic income experiment is alive and well, and will be continued to its completion at the end of this year.

Many international media outlets have been very keen on reporting about Finland's two-year test run of Universal Basic Income (UBI) ever since the trial began more than a year ago.

However, according to the Social Insurance Institution of Finland (Kela), many of those media outlets appear to have misunderstood recent developments in the trial.

Gobble Translate will get you in trouble.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

This is a classic example of fake news that passes for the real deal, and it fits someone's agenda (free money for bankers only) that something like would fail.

Attempting to correct this inaccuracy on breitbart

We seldom correct these types of things but the media should consult with us on Finnish stories.

Finnish is very difficult to translate to English.

hug.gif Right on JR, if you know something is wrong speak out. Nobody is more qualified to straighten out media inaccuracies regarding Finland than kritterbox and Octo. Finnish is impossible to understand unless you grew up speaking it, I dated a guy from Helsinki, believe you me I know. I pinned this to follow up on if they correct it and if they give kb credit for bringing this to their attention.
