Podcast: Saving Europe From Itself – A Universal Basic Income
with Stewart Lansley8th December 2019
How about giving everyone a guaranteed basic income – a universal benefit to provide a basic foundation for our daily life? It is one of the most contested and controversial ideas of the modern age. But as the world of work transforms beyond recognition, is it only a matter of time before utopia becomes reality? Economist and financial journalist Stewart Lansley thinks so. He talks to hosts Zoe Williams and Luke Cooper about the case for a UBI.
The European Cultural Foundation supports this initiative as it is rethinking Europe as an open and democratic space.
