### How do you define "scraping by on" in terms of the actual material and
immaterial amenities available, not in dollar amounts? How many sq.ft of
living space should you be able to rent? Should you be able to afford
salmon? Books? Cocaine? Should you be prevented from spending your GMI on
some objects?

The devil is in the details, as usual.
