  • Philippe Van Parijs needs to be moved to Philippe van Parijs - cf. Dutch article on this philosopher. --Brz7 02:11, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
    • Contested: just because Dutch has this with the lower-case "v" doesn't mean it's correct. All other languages have it with the capital "V". —METS501 (talk) 02:14, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
      • Well in Dutch the "v" is always lower case (and Philippe van Parijs is a Dutch name) and not alphabetised under "v" but e.g. under "G" in case of Vincent van Gogh. --Brz7 02:23, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
        • In the Netherlands, yes. In Belgium, the spellings of surnames are very inconsistent and can be written as one word (e.g. Vanhecke), or with "tussenvoegsels" capitalised (e.g. Van Hemele). Melsaran (formerly Salaskаn) 03:59, 5 August 2007 (UTC)
          • Yes, there are quite some inconsistencies in this topic I see :) Interesting.. When written as one word there's no confusion (though you'll have to know whether it's one word or not when you hear somebody saying the name). But otherwise there's a wide variety. "Van" directly refers to origin (and not to "the origin", the actual place (etc.) that follows after "van") and the minor/major case indicates the importance a culture/person gives to origin. Just found Wikipedia:Naming conventions (people). This page could maybe use more information/examples on this topic. --Brz7 10:28, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

More about his basic income-philosophy perhaps[edit]

Since he is the most well-know spokesman for basic income it would perhaps be good with a description of his basic income theory. For example, why does he think that basic income is fair? Why he calls himself a real libertarian or left-libertarian. One thing that makes him stand out from many others in the field is that he argues that those who has a paid job recieves extra benefits which is over and above the netwage that they would have had, had the market been clean (a pure Walrasian economics). He calls this extra benefit, which people get, for a job rent or employment rent. It is fair to take the jobrent from those who work and distribute it to everyone, since the jobrent is an extra payment which is over and above the correct market wage. Except the jobrent he also views other sources as legitimate for a basic income, including sources natural resources (as in Alaska Permanent Fond). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mats33 (talkcontribs) 18:08, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
