Basic Income in Depth
December 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Basic Income, also known as Universal Basic Income or UBI, is a regular income unconditionally paid to every individual person. Basic Income is often touted as a more efficient form of welfare or as an answer to automation eliminating people’s jobs, but there’s more to it than that.
Want to know more? Have questions, concerns, or objections? Basic Income expert Alex Howlett will give a 10-minute talk introducing the idea. We will then open up the room for questions and discussion.
Alex has been studying the economics of Basic Income since 2011 and he moderates the weekly Boston Basic Income discussion group, which streams live on YouTube.
