Guaranteed National Income

October 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

What would happen if we had a National Basic Income (NBI)? Every citizen of the country is
guaranteed to receive money, regardless of circumstances. This idea has
been around for a few decades as a potential solution to ending poverty.
It has also been championed as a way to reduce social programs and
government bureaucracy. In the spring of 2016, Switzerland voted down a
referendum on this, but Finland is drafting a plan which will be
presented via referendum in late 2016. While some fear automation will
shrink available jobs, others see NBI as a way to stimulate the economy.
We invite you to engage in a little dreaming about what our future
could be.

HERE is the conversation guide. Pay particular attention to the questions in Round 2.
