- Eye Opening
The city of Maricá in Brazil showcases the benefits of socioeconomic engineering through its provision of a universal basic income, underpinned by its establishment and oversight of a sovereign wealth fund. As activists Paul Katz and Leandro Ferreira explain in this illuminating look at the Brazilian town, these measures will benefit Maricá’s inhabitants as they deal with COVID-19. The city’s success could serve as an exemplar for governments struggling to mitigate the economic fallout from the virus.
