What I don't understand is why you would give it to everyone, unconditionally. It would make more sense, to me, that at a certain income level, you reduce the GMI given to a person by a fraction of a dollar for every extra dollar earner, so that there is never a case where you take home less total for earning more. You pay no income tax until you hit the point of earning no GMI. Then you only tax the incrimental dollars earned above that threshold.
Otherwise, those of us earning a wage that is high enough not to need the GMI would just be recycling that money back into our taxes.
A GMI should also replace the host of other programs that the feds and provinces have (in the US, we have welfare, food stamps, medicaid, WIC, Obamacare subsidies, and probably a whole lot more that i dont know about).

That's the problem with cities, they're refuges for the weak, the fish that didn't evolve.
I don't want to google this - sounds like a thing that NSMB will be better at.
