      Everyone. Excluding children one would assume.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

      One way of doing it would be citizens 21 and older. Another way is for adults to get a full basic income and children to get half that amount (payable to their parents). Another way would be having to work for 5 years before becoming eligible--I think something like that would be needed here in the US. In Europe and Canada and Brazil where this has gotten more attention, the idea of a basic income is that it's for everyone unconditionally.
