VIDEO: Portuguese talk show dedicates 30 minutes to Basic Income
In this 30 minutes talk show, Júlia Pinheiro, a well-known TV host in Portugal, interviews António Fernandes, Basic Income activist at RBI Portugal, and António Dores, sociologist. Economist Florbela Oliveira takes on the skeptic’s role in the conversation, which entirely surrounds basic income, including its definition and implications. After António Fernandes presents basic income as a concept, Florbela questions its financial applicability (who pays for it), and António Dores clarifies that, according to a viability study already developed for the Portuguese situation, it is the beneficiaries themselves who pay for it, through a simple solidarity wealth redistribution scheme.
