What's the talk about?

The idea of a Universal Basic Income isn't a new one. It is even being tried in some places in the world right now.

This idea, as far as I understand it is, at its core, very simply - instead of everyone getting tax allowances, and those who need it claiming benefits, we give everyone a Basic Universal Income. If you are in work you get it, and you pay tax on anything more that you earn. Everyone has an incentive to work because you earn more if you do.

Will Stronge, will I'm sure give us an authorititive description.

Will is a researcher in Politics and Philosophy at the University of Brighton and Associate Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Chichester and is one of the core team at the think-tank The Autonomy Institute.
