This chapter considers the debates over unconditional basic income (UBI). Debates over welfare reform rage between advocates of welfare contractualism and supporters of UBI. When judged against standards of non-ideal fair reciprocity, there is good reason to be wary of both types of policies on their own. Policymakers guided by the distributive aims to fair reciprocity and legitimate paternalistic considerations should consider the combination of the two.
