Letter to the City of Austin, TX

Presented here from an earlier interview are the core principles and tenets of the ULW framework and formula.  In as much as we only had to insert current wage amounts and area perspectives, we have shown the universality of the formula and its application and ability to meet the economic needs of the entire nation.  At the same time, the concept of the ULW remains viable for the entire world. 

In addition to addressing wages for those who can work,  we use the same formula for those who are disabled and can't work, also enabling them to access housing wherever they live throughout the US.  Combined, they become "Livable Incomes."
