Annie Lowrey - Give People Money: How a Universal Basic Income Would End Poverty, Revolutionize Work, and Remake the World - with Ezra Klein

Upcoming Event
Thursday, July 12, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A system of unconditional, regular income given by the government to every citizen, universal basic income (UBI) has been praised as the cure for increasing inequality and persistent poverty as well as condemned as a give-away that would discourage people from working. In her comprehensive report on this hotly-debated idea, Lowrey, the economy columnist for New York, considers the potential of UBI and assesses its challenges in a variety of contexts, including Kenya, where a UBI is helping to stabilize the lives of the very poorest; India, where a UBI could balance the inefficient programs now failing the poor; and Silicon Valley, where the heads of big technology are financing UBI pilots in anticipation of AI replacing human workers.

Lowrey will be in conversation with Ezra Klein, Editor-at-Large of Vox.
