I can only see it ending in inflation and prices going up. I think this kind of thing only worked in Star Trek, which a lot of these ideas seem to be modeled on, because there was a garuntee of food, shelter, and clothing outside of the need to buy it. Perhaps looking into meeting those basic needs would be better than just a chunk of cash for everyone.
I am familar with similar programs in Alaska among the native peoples there who receive free housing, a basic income, and healthcare from their tribal corporations. However, it comes with strings attached. No Alcohol, no drugs, and harsh punishments for crime. Many natives choose to leave their villages to find places they can get their vices. On the other side many of the folks recieving the basic income spend their days doing very little but watching TV and playing on the computer. Perhaps if there was a garuntee of employment and a need to work attached it would be better but overall it seems like flawed system. (Most of the money comes from tribal investments which seem to do well and some native groups are able to really help their communities as well)
