Topic: ‘Uniformity’ as a Characteristic of Basic Income: 1pm GMT (2pm London), 26th Tuesday April 2022

As it stands, BIEN’s definition of BI permits discrimination on the basis of gender, race and creed. The addition of a new characteristic ‘uniform’ could lead to large household economies of scale. ‘Uniform (except by age)’ could legitimize the exclusion of some age groups from a BI program. Annie Miller, co-founder of BIEN and co-chair of CBID, will give a short presentation, and open discussion will follow.

The forum will be held via zoom. All are welcome. For the link to zoom, please send email to: cbidbien@gmail.com
