This year’s Managing the Disruption, an annual conference organized by the billionaire real estate entrepreneur Jeff Greene, will include a talk by basic income advocate and writer Scott Santens. The two-day conference will focus on themes related to ways in which our social institutions can and should adapt to technological and cultural change — including, in particular, the threat of technological unemployment. Santens will speak on the question “Universal Basic Income: Possibility or a Dream?”

The conference will take place April 2-3, 2017, in Palm Beach, Florida, with Santens’s 10-minute talk to be held at 11:35am on April 3.

Other speakers include former UK Prime Minister David Cameron, futurist and inventor Ray Kurzweil, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and, immediately following Santens, former US Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence Summers, among many others. The event is registration only, with ticket prices beginning at $1,750 for general admission.
