The way I see this is can pretty much be summed up by the "teach a man how to fish" approach. I think we really need to plough our resources into skills development. Joffe is right, this is essentially going around the problem and not addressing it at all. BIG skirts the issue - 'oh, poor people let's give them a basic grant'. It should be 'why are these people poor to start off with'.

Of course poverty is a serious problem, but a BIG will not make it go away.
