The basic inheritance is a unique opportunity for more justice, capital formation and economic power.
We believe that everyone has a natural right to an adequate share of the world he/she was born into. Everyone has the right to receive the means to secure his/her existence and organize his/her life. This is an individual right which must therefore be independent of a parents' property situation. But the reality is different. If you don't have wealthy parents, it is harder to unfold your potential in life. Societies are drifting apart.
We want to counter this with a general basic inheritance. It will provide a personal and family independent chance to capital for every young citizen. The foundation will make a start on this. In the next few years it will draw up to 40 basic inheritances at 20,000 € among 30-year-old citizens in Germany each year.
