Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bleh. His "progressives" seem to be a synthesized from lots of people who disagree with him.
Who advocates food stamps? People who don't want to trust the poor with actual money. Who advocates a BIG? Several groups, but I'd argue mainly ones who fundamentally disagree with the popular slave moral that everyone has to have a job to justify his existence.
His policy proposal is sound of course, but he tends to oversell it. Just as means testing is not an inherent part of transfer payments nothing prevents the reigning misanthropes from turning the Jobs Guarantee into a caricature of itself.
