Dylan Matthews, contributor to Vox and formerly to The Washington Post, has written a series of well-researched posts on the universal basic income. Since December 2012, Matthews’s posts have frequently been on Basic Income News.
Matthews was included in Politics Daily’s “five rising stars under 25” and started his own politics blog, MiniPundit, at age 14. He attended Harvard University where he wrote for The Harvard Crimson, and he has worked with Ezra Klein extensively over the past five years at both Vox and The Washington Post.
