This Article proposes a new guaranteed minimum income (GMI) focused on women’s education, child welfare, and delayed childbearing, thereby creating environmentally and economically sustainable benefits which in turn allays concerns about the prohibitive costs of conventional GMI programs. The Article frames its GMI proposal from the perspective of the future child and explores what entitlements we can create to benefit that cohort of future peoples and a world that puts children first on a fair start to a path forward.
