American Equity – Sam Altman

I’d like feedback on the following idea.

I think that every adult US citizen should get an annual share of the US GDP.

There are historical examples of countries giving out land to citizens (such as the Homestead Acts in the US) as a way to distribute the resources people needed to succeed. Today, the fundamental input to wealth generation isn’t farmland, but money and ideas—you really do need money to make money.

I think we could start very small—a few hundred dollars per citizen per year
