“Basic Income: A Radical Proposal for a Free Society and a Sane Economy”

April 12, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-8


Philippe Van Parijs will present at Stanford University on his new book, Basic Income: A Radical Proposal for a Free Society and a Sane Economy (co-written with Yannick Vanderborght), in which the authors offer a comprehensive defense of basic income, advocating it as the most promising way to address economic insecurity and social exclusion in the twenty-first century.

This event is part of a series conducted by Stanford’s Basic Income Lab, launched in February 2017.

About Kate McFarland

Kate McFarland has written 36 articles.

I was a statistician, then a philosopher, then a journalist for a certain Basic Income News, and I have never been the sort to wed myself to any specific position or career path. I will be leaving basic income news reporting soon too, but you can follow me on Facebook and Patreon, where I like to post about my favorite topics: the deliberate rejection of full-time jobs and lifelong careers.
