    beginning of the semester, we were asked several questions relating to “Writing Is Not Just a Basic Skill”, a commentary by Mark Richardson. When I had finished answering all the questions, I was confused. So many other students were agreeing that writing was not a basic skill. I was writing essays since I was nine and writing was never hard for me. I seemed to have been the only student confident enough about their writing to say that it is a basic skill.

    Well based off my research I found two basic guaranteed income models: The universal basic income referred to as UBI and the negative income tax referred to as NIT.
