Can cities even afford a UBI not paid in their own currency?

This is a debate between three people running for mayor of NYC – one of the richest cities in the world – about how they can possibly afford a UBI

This is going to be an issue for mayors of a growing number of cities that are looking to make this happen.

Just another reason why a sustainable UBI can only be paid out in the city’s own currency, and a huge extra bonus, then the community can solve its problems voluntarily and democratically.

Yes, @Greg, it looks like they finally getting it and we had several similar conversations in the UK as well.
Many government officials are searching for solutions now and it’s another reason why we need to show the way to a sustainable UBI, paid out in the city’s own currency with a huge extra bonus for the community to solve some other challenges.
