- Eye Opening
For decades, the idea of universal basic income has been relegated to the policy fringes, dismissed as a pie-in-the-sky ideal far removed from the hard-nosed realities of a capitalist, workaday world – but no more. With politicians increasingly feeling the populist heat from voters angry about economic dislocation, governments are quietly coming around to a radical rethink of social welfare policy. International Business Times chief editor Peter S. Goodman offers up a digestible, jargon-free overview of the debate. getAbstract recommends his insights to anyone looking for an easy entry point to an increasingly relevant policy discussion.
