WORLD BASIC INCOME
WORLD BASIC INCOME
We are providing an experimental monthly World Basic Income to Atlanteans (permanent residents) in the City of Atlantis.
WHAT IS WORLD BASIC INCOME?
The City of Atlantis will be providing a monthly World Basic Income Program to Atlanteans (permanent residents). Providing a monthly World Basic Income Program to top off Atlanteans’ income will allow permanent residents living in the City of Atlantis to thrive and reach their full potential.
The World Basic Income program is being provided by the Earth Dollar. The goal is to reward people to live a sustainable lifestyle, including to help fulfill the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals. People and organizations will be paid to plant more trees, to restore the climate, to clean up the beaches, to farm hemp, to clean up the lake and rivers, and save our planet.
The World Basic Income Program is different from Universal Basic Income (“UBI”). While the UBI concept is to give people fish, the World Basic Income Program teaches people how to fish. The World Basic Income Program only pays and rewards people for their successful contribution to fulling the Enhanced Sustainable Development Goals.
World Basic Income (WBI) is a very simple solution to create prosperity and increase the quality of life by paying people money in the form of Earth Dollar and other cryptocurrencies. The World Basic Income Program benefits both people and businesses. A World Basic Income grows and stimulates the economy because people can acquire good food and services out of reach of their current budget.

My eldest brother died from starvation in China after WWII and our family was deeply affected by poverty. I feel it’s my moral duty to End Global Poverty in my lifetime. – David Kam, Founder of World Basic Income and the Earth Dollar -.
For our pilot project, up to 200,000 Atlanteans (permanent residents) can receive a World Basic Income.
In the future, as the Earth Dollar acquires more assets, the Earth Wealth Fund becomes wealthier, we plan to roll out the World Basic Income regularly to more areas around the world of up to 100 million people. It will depend on how much support we receive.
As automation sweeps the world, and widespread 3-D printing becomes a reality there will be fewer jobs available, so the World Basic Income program makes more sense. You can enjoy the financial freedom of spending more time with friends and family.
“As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality exist in our world, none of us can truly rest.”— Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa
Income security is recognized in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Article 22: Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and… realization… of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality). The dignity of the individual must include the opportunity to live freely and responsibly within society.
Austerity measures in the last decade have hurt individuals, families and future generations. The World Basic Income provided by this program grants a measure of freedom to everyone and is designed to end austerity measures.
Being poor is not only hard, but it is also humiliating. By giving benefits to all the people who are registered citizens, humiliation is removed. The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights enshrined this principle in its preamble: ‘recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice, and peace in the world’. Within our present economic system, life depends on obtaining food, clothing, and shelter through money. One can also pay by way of vouchers, for which you have to go to an office and line up to apply. Users of such vouchers are able to purchase only what is designated while individuals with money are able to decide how to use their finances freely. These are both forms of discrimination and cause for humiliation. The legal right to a World Basic Income transfer payment enables a dignified life with the opportunity to participate in society. It also fulfills the right to a life free from discrimination on the basis of poverty.
Our judgments of the poor hurt a lot of good people. World Basic Income program is open to everyone without any judgment. It provides the means for dignity and respect to all our relations in the human family.
