"What emotion do you live with?" – the team of Ukrainian popular social and political TV show “Freedom of Speaking by Savik Shuster” asked the youth of Ukraine aged 18-29 on 04/24/2020. The answers were distributed as follows: 49% – hope for tomorrow, 39% – fear for tomorrow, 12% – humiliation because of living conditions 20 . Despite the fact that almost 50% of Ukraine's young people have positive emotions about their lives, just over 50% feel uncertain and dissatisfied. In our view, such a pattern of emotions cannot characterize modern Ukrainian society as sustainable for the development and build-up of human capital. It is difficult to predict whether the answers of young Ukrainians would change if they were offered a guaranteed, equal for all, periodically paid basic unconditional income. This question requires additional investigation, but according to its idea, the economic instrument of the basic unconditional income is aimed, among other targets, at providing confidence in the future, guarantees for existence and freedom of action to people.
