“Universal Basic Income: Has its Time Come?”…

…fragte die BBC World Service und lud dazu eine Runde ein:

“To discuss all this and more, the BBC’s Ed Butler is joined by a panel of four: Professor Louise Haagh, Reader of Politics at the University of York, and the co-chair of the Basic Income Earth Network; Michael Tanner, Senior Fellow of the CATO Institute in Washington DC; Michael Faye, co-founder of Give Directly, which is piloting its own Universal Income project in Kenya; and Professor Ian Gough of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion at the London School of Economics.”

“My Second Thoughts About Universal Basic Income”…

…ein Beitrag von Tyler Cowen, der so schließt: “Unfortunately, I don’t have a good answer for how to get there, but I worry that permanent subsidies for those who don’t work wouldn’t lead toward solutions. That means effective safety-net policies will continue to be messy and complex. Although the universal basic income idea sounds like a good direct fix, it probably leads in the wrong direction.”
