It will be successful in increasing economic growth. Removing benefits and giving everyone a fixed sum of money per month will disincentivize voluntary unemployment, remove moral hazard from benefit schemes, and encourage poor people to seek ways out of poverty. Also there should be less pressure on public infrastructure, including healthcare.
It will be successful in reducing the number of migrants seeking refuge in Finland.
It will NOT be successful in making life easier for the most poor and unfortunate.
From economic perspective, it should certainly be successful. It is hard to judge it from ethical point of view though.
