9781137535313Basic Income in Australia and New Zealand, a collection of 10 essays, is the latest addition to Palgrave Macmillan’s “Exploring the Basic Income Guarantee” series.

From the publisher’s description:
“This book is the first collective volume of its kind to ask whether a basic income offers a viable solution to the income support systems in Australia and New Zealand. Though often neglected in discussions of basic income, both countries are advanced liberal democracies dominated by neoliberal transformations of the welfare state, and therefore have great potential to advance debates on the topic. The contributors’ essays and case studies explore the historical basis on which a basic income program might stand in these two countries, the ideological nuances and complexities of implementing such a policy, and ideas for future development that might allow the program to be put into practice regionally and applied internationally.”
