What would YOU do with a guaranteed monthly income?
The Covid-19 pandemic has made the benefits of a universal basic income much more obvious to most people. As a political pragmatist I’ve been in favor of some kind of UBI for a long time. In this episode I talk about the many reasons why I think having a cash UBI would be better than the miserable patchwork of our current social “safety net”. A guaranteed UBI would lead to a society that not only has less poverty, but also fosters more innovation, does a better job of supporting its citizens as they care for each other, and is better prepared to meet the challenges of the future.
