• What is the moral or ethical case for basic income as a right?

• Shouldn't everyone receive a stake in society's wealth?

• Could we create a fairer world by granting a guaranteed income to all?

• What would this mean for our health, wealth and happiness?

Today in one the richest countries in the world, 60% of households in poverty have people in jobs, inequality is the highest it has been for 100 years, climate change threatens our extinction and automation means millions are forced into a life of precarity. The solution? Basic Income.

Guaranteed Basic Income is a regular cash transfer from the state, received by all individual c legal residents. It is an acknowledgement that everyone plays a part in generating the wealth currently enjoyed only by a few. Political parties across the world are now adopting it as official policy and the idea generates headlines every day. Guy Standing has been at the forefront of thought about Guaranteed Basic Income for the past thirty years and in this talk for Conway Hall Ethical Society me makes the ethical case for Basic Income in the time of pandemic and beyond.

Guy will be drawing mainly from his two books for Pelican — the first three chapters of Basic Income: And how we can make it happen and Plunder of the Commons: A manifesto for sharing public wealth. Guaranteed Basic Income is a matter of common justice, it will enhance freedom and will provide basic security as a public good, and above all provide personal and societal resilience in a time of pandemics. Guy will also link the pandemic slump to the Eight Giants of his most recent book, which is published by Bloomsbury.
