An interesting aspect to basic income is this: without basic income, capitalists can externalize their costs. With basic income guaranteed, the source is taxation. If prices rise in response to basic income, then taxes would rise over time.
I think a very similar dynamic is present with the minimum wage, too. Except that the minimum wage is not guaranteed and generally doest track with inflation or productivity.
A basic income guaranteed insures that the gains from productivity flows to everyone, not just the 1%.
