Room for Discussion — Op woensdag 20 maart ontving Room for Discussion...
An old idea is back on the agenda: an unconditional guaranteed basic income for all, no questions asked. No more worries, but economic freedom for all, the end of poverty. A free lunch fallacy, or socio-economic paradise? Recently Rutger Bregman reinvigorated the idea of the universal basic income on Dutch television in Tegenlicht, which seems more than a trend. The international discussion on basic income has been rekindled. With technology increasing productivity to unknown heights, a new question has popped up. On Wednesday the 9th of April, Room for Discussion will foster an economic debate on basic income with Guy Standing. Guy Standing is a British professor in Development Studies at SOAS (University of London) and one of the founders of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN) advocating a European petition on basic income. Attend our interview on the 9th of April at 12:30 at the Amsterdamse Academische Club. Who: Guy Standing (professor Development Studies) Kind regards, P.S.
