The basic inheritance is a unique opportunity for more justice, capital formation and economic power.

Everyone has a natural right to an adequate share of the world he/she was born into. 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 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 10 basic inheritances at 15,000 € among 30-year-old citizens in Germany each year.

The Basic Inheritance on ARTE "Yourope"

A minor mistake in the video: The basic inheritance requires 5 % of the annual inherited estate, but not everyone has to give 5 %. There could be high tax allowances, e.g. 400.000 €.
