Listen on

Episode notes

Director of the Action & Research Centre at the RSA, Anthony Painter discusses his proposal for bringing Universal Basic Income into the UK. 

He alleviates many of my concerns as we discuss a host of factors that are involved with the introduction of UBI. There is a huge body of evidence supporting what he is saying so I encourage you to look it up and continue the conversation. Is UBI a good place to look for answers when trying to fix our societies problems? I think it has legs. If you don't agree, tell me what you think would work better on Twitter @FascinatePod Get in touch with Anthony & find out more about the RSA at @anthonypainter or @theRSAorg or https://www.thersa.org/
