I think the ubI is more a level that civilized society says nobody should fall below. I don't think it's to level the field.

This equals out to about $50,832,000,000 per year in welfare, their GDP is $216,000,000,000. That leaves over $150,000,000,000 to work with. It might actually work because all that money will be put back into the economy anyways.
It's awesome when a government puts the welfare of their people over profit. Time will tell if this will work but I'm guessing the people who drew it up looked at the budget.
