Reyer Brons, “Ook de SER noemt het basisinkomen” [SER starts talking basic income too]


The influential Social and Economic Council of the Netherlands has quietly started an internal debate on basic income.
The official newsletter of the so-called SER (“Sociaal-economische Raad”, an official advisory organ composed of national employers and employee representatives as well as government experts) has carried two positive articles about basic income’s potential in recent months.
Dutch commentator Reyer Brons notes that given the SER’s semi-institutionalized influence over social policy design, the articles represent an important signal that BIG has “well and truly” made it onto the national political agenda.
