Not logically a great idea; the cost of living will rise to absorb the extra cash, increasing the income inequality.

That's not how it works. People are not going to shop around for cheaper education because they don't have to. They can't transmute that left over federal aid into food or rent. They cannot transmute that leftover daycare assistance into gas for their car. So why bother?

But if you give everyone $1000, they'll look for a $200 community college and a $100 daycare so they can have a second pair of shoes or a nice steak dinner once a month or something else for themself.
