It isn't clear if the authors are advocating the whole hog either. UBI's original concept is to take the place of ALL social spending. I.e, No welfare, no healthcare provision, no public education. Give the citizen's cash, and everything else is their responsibility. Supposedly cheaper, due to less government bureaucracy needed/spending. It would mean that WE go privatised/insurance-based.
