Phil BC, “Why Labour Should Adopt the Citizen’s Income”

This post discusses the citizen’s income (also known as the basic income) as a possible policy for the Labour party in the UK to support. By looking at the Green party’s manifesto, the pilot project results in Namibia, and the Alaskan Permanent Fund dividends, the author argues that it fits Labour’s ideology and should be supported.
