Money for nothing! Could this be the answer to poverty and other social challenges we face?

Join us in this free panel event as we interrogate the merits of a Basic Income.

  • How does Basic Income work in practice?
  • Does it have unintended consequences?
  • How on earth would we pay for it?
  • And if a Basic Income is the answer, what really is the question?
