The Alaska dividend isn't even enough to bridge the divide between the poverty level in the lower 48 and the poverty level up there. Things are a lot more costly in Alaska. And the payment is relatively small. So I'd be carefully of taking too much from it one way or another.

$2,000/citizen isn't much of a "basic income" at all -- perhaps that's why Alaska's universal payment did not impact overall employment rates

And since 1981, half the drop in prime-age male LFP was accounted for by men saying they were disabled (even as health improved). Another quarter was accounted for by non-disabled men who said they didn't want a job.

The paper's great, but bear in mind it only covers 1999-2016. Male prime-age LFP has been declining since 1930. Looking at longer-term, I find 75% of drop since 1960s accounted for by men who say they don't want a job

And by my rough calculation using in the Abraham & paper, a fifth of the drop in EPOP among those 25-54 not due to demographic change easily could be due to greater beneficiaries in SSDI, SSI, and vet disability programs.

They also say that one-fifth the SSDI caseload wouldn't have been getting SSDI in 2016 if within-age recipiency rates hadn't risen after 1999.
