Give People Money: A Conversation with Chris Hughes and Annie Lowrey

Imagine if every month the government deposited $500 into your bank account, with nothing expected in return.

Universal basic income (UBI) –the idea of giving every citizen an annual stipend, no questions asked–has become one of the most influential and hotly debated policy ideas of our time, with futurists to libertarians, Nobel Prize-winning economists to union organizers, promoting this 'social vaccine' as a counterbalance to grinding poverty, stagnating mobility, and increasing inequality.

The idea, first championed by Thomas Paine and later Martin Luther King Jr., has been piloted in places like Canada and Finland and is revisited in the U.S in two new books, Give People Money: How a Universal Basic Income Would End Poverty, Revolutionize Work, and Remake the World by economics writer Annie Lowrey, and Fair Shot: Rethinking Inequality and How We Earn by Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes.

On July 11 join New America NYC for a conversation moderated by New America Senior Fellow Georgia Levenson Keohane that examines the specific forces that have created today's growing economic unfairness and what impact this burgeoning international policy movement could play in combating it.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
