Matt Zwolinski - The Case for a Universal Basic Income
The idea of a Universal Basic Income (UBI) gained national attention with the presidential campaign of Andrew Yang. But where did the idea come from? And does it really make economic or moral sense? In this talk, Professor Matt Zwolinski of the University of San Diego will talk about the history of the UBI, the main arguments for and against it, and why it is gaining appeal not only on the political left, but among certain conservatives and libertarians as well.
