#BasicIncome Europe "lively debate" PBS Article, America Next?

PBS has brilliantly helped raise basic income awareness via an article titled "Will a guaranteed income ever come to America?" PBS mentions the "lively debate" in Europe regarding basic income.

The article hinges upon the pending Swiss referendum. There is a lack of optimism in the article but all publicity is good publicity. The important issue is people are genuinely considering the possibility of free money. PBS published their views on 7 April 2014. The article was written by Felix Oberholzer-Gee who stated:

"So, will Europe provide a guaranteed income to its citizens? My personal view is that this is unlikely. The Swiss in particular (most of whom are temperamentally risk averse) are too practical to turn into strong proponents of radical redistribution. Differences in beliefs about the reasons for income inequality, however, will continue to drive redistributive policies."

Below is the video from the article, and below the video is a PS Warriors G+ post mentioning the article.
