Thomas More’s Utopia still inspires social experiments in Europe. In Oulu in Northern Finland, the local government is going to select 2 000 unemployed people and provide them a universal basic salary, without any conditions. The intention is encourage people to take a new job or start their own business without risking losing their social benefits if they will earn extra income.
