>From 2016 to 2018, in Finland the government paid a universal income to
2'000 long-term unemployed.  A team of experts have now completed their
analysis of the results - conclusion: unremarkable. 

- recipients were sceptical at first, but quickly turned enthusiastic.

- 3/4 of the population was sceptical beforehand and remained so. 

- none of the unemployed found employment.

- does not make anyone more active or more passive.

Overall conclusion - the universal income did not improve on the
existing situation.
