Free money

Finland Has Second Thoughts About Giving Free Money to Jobless People
Excerpt: Now, the experiment is ending. The Finnish government has opted not to continue financing it past this year, a reflection of public discomfort with the idea of dispensing government largess free of requirements that its recipients seek work. Finland has actually reversed course on that front this year, adopting rules that threaten to cut benefits for jobless people unless they actively look for work or engage in job training. (Gee, I'm stunned. People don't like working to pay taxes to give money to people who won't work? Who would have guessed? ~Bob)
