Julia Hermann, “Would an unconditional basic income be just?”

Hermann considers basic income from the perspective of justice and concludes that basic income is worth pursuing.  She finds that basic income would be just due to its egalitarian nature of real equality, and it will ensure an income floor for everyone by decoupling work from income.  Further, she believes that a basic income will lead to financial independence for all women, which can help push toward gender equality.
