Guaranteed basic income could help with infrastructure projects

The Business Section of the New York Times, p. 4, features an analysis by Robert H. Frank,”Handouts wit a Twist: Rebuilding America”, link here.

The subject is basic guaranteed income.  Frank notes that grants that are too big could lead people to settle into intentional communities and withdraw from the economy pretty much (although intentional communities do sell renewable products).  But he things a smaller grant could actually support major infrastructure projects.
