An almost two hour discussion of the Sri Lankan economic crisis in the broader context of today’s flawed development model moderated by Sonali Wanigabaduge concludes with former World Bank senior director for Development Economics, the chief economist of the Middle East and North Africa, Africa, and South Asia regions and the Human Development Network, Shanta Devarajan, agreeing with BIEN Co-Founder, Guy Standing, that resources from an IMF Loan to Sri Lanka should be used to fund an UBI. The whole discussion is relevant, but If you are short on time, see the concluding comments beginning at 1h35m.
