So nice, we had to do it twice! Dive deeper into the topic of Unconditional Basic Income in our second webinar, co-hosted with FEASTA and Vermonters for a New Economy. We discuss the finer points of UBI as a key element in the transition to a society centered around universal well-being. Featuring Scott Santens, Marjukka Turunen, Herbert Jauch, Enno Schmidt, and Michel Bauwens.
Earlier this year, we co-hosted two webinars with FEASTA and Vermonters for a New Economy to discuss the feasibility and mechanics of an unconditional (or guaranteed) basic income. This episode is an edited recording of our first conversation with Marjukka Turunen, Elinor Buchen, Brent Ranalli, and Justin Williams.
Unconditional Basic Income. People around the world are in desperate need of economic relief in a pandemic that has exposed and exacerbated extreme levels of disparity and poverty. A basic income could be the solution. In this episode, we speak with Scott Santens, a writer and advocate for UBI who is also the first person to crowdfund his own poverty-level basic income. We ask about his argument for UBI, the barriers to achieving it, and the future he sees possible for humanity.
