Basic Income

E06S01

Imagine the world if we all had the security of a basic income guarantee... How would our priorities change? Would we take more risks and get more creative or simply be complacent? How would it work?

Together with economist Evelyn Forget from Canada, who has been on the forefront of many basic income experiments, I am looking into what it would mean for citizens to have what is called a basic income.

This topic has become increasingly discussed in different parts of the world and who knows, maybe we are getting closer to an implementation than we think... The opinions seem to differ but Evelyn offers and interesting point of view - is a basic income policy an unavoidable step to secure our well-being in the future?

You can read more about Evelyn's research in her book Basic Income for Canadians.
