Would you support a negative income tax?

Posted by: W1ll1ph0n3

The idea of a negative income tax dates back to the 70's when Nobel prize winning economist Milton Friedman proposed it to eradicate poverty. The idea is simple; let's assume that the government sets a poverty threshold of 1000$/Month, so if I only earn 800$, I would get 200$ from the government and don't have to pay taxes. If I earn more than 1000$ however, I would pay taxes like most people.
