Raising the Floor: How a Universal Basic Income Can Renew Our Economy and Rebuild the American Dream

Setup

Technologists and reputable research now predict a huge potential for disruption in jobs as the pace of technology accelerates. Canada, Finland, the Netherlands, GiveDirectly, and Y Combinator are all proposing experiments in a Universal Basic Income (UBI) as an answer, but American politicians are silent. This session will explore why UBI is the right future economic policy for the United States, how to pay for it, and why it has been supported by Martin Luther King, Charles Murray, Robert Reich, and Milton Friedman. (Book signing to follow.)
