Too Long; Didn't Read

The essay discusses the idea of giving every adult US citizen an annual share of the country's GDP as a way to align citizens' interests and increase prosperity. The author believes that this could help eliminate poverty and improve social cohesion, and suggests starting with a small amount and gradually increasing it to a target of 10-20% of GDP per year. The comment section touches on the challenges of implementing such a program, such as immigration policy and avoiding short-term thinking.
