In the UK, there is a plan to give people around $2,000 every month without them having to do anything. This is called "universal basic income" (UBI). The idea is that everyone in the country gets the same amount of money from the government each month to help with important things like food and housing. Right now, a research organization called Autonomy is testing this idea. They will give 30 people in two places in England over $2,000 every month for two years. During this time, the people can also work if they want to. The goal is to see how this money affects people's well-being. Some think UBI can reduce poverty and give people stability, while others worry it will cost too much money.
