When we put together the USBIG
Network in 1999 and 2000, we decided to go with the name Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) as an inclusive name for several different approaches.
This term was chosen by USBIG (the US Basic Income Guarantee Network--see below) because it is similar to both "basic income" (as the best-known version of BIG is known in Europe today) and "guaranteed income" (as the idea was known in the United States when it was seriously considered in the 1960s and 70s).
The US Basic Income Guarantee Network (USBIG) was founded in January 2000.
