Welcome to a seminar on the new book "Basinkomstens nya våg" (The New Wave of Universal Basic Income). The webinar will be live streamed on this page.
In the book leading researchers on universal basic income (UBI) analyze recent UBI-related experiments in Finland and The Netherlands. What can these experiments tell us about the consequences of a UBI in advanced welfare states? The authors deal with the political processes that gave birth to the experiments and sheds light upon the effects on society of a UBI. Why were these experiments undertaken? What can be learned from a political and scientific standpoint? And what - if anything - can be said about the desirability of a UBI, based on these experiments?
