Neil Howard, “Basic Income and the Anti-Slavery Movement”
Howard’s post is framed in the modern slavery debate, where a world opposed to slavery still has failed to eradicate it. He argues that a basic income could help fight slavery through its emancipatory nature by citing the recent pilot project in India that freed many of the poorest people from needing to work with moneylenders to make ends meet. Basic income empowers people to say no to bad jobs and say yes to the good ones thanks to economic security.
