A Universal Basic Income for Scotland – a talk by Annie Miller

A Universal Basic Income, or Citizens Income, is increasingly being put forward as the answer to failed benefits systems and the automation of jobs, but how could it work?
Annie Miller is a cofounder of the Basic Income Earth Network and of Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland. Her book, A Basic Income Handbook, is published this summer by the Luath Press.

This is the third of three talks jointly organised by the SUWN and Common Weal Dundee. The first introduced the SUWN’s book, Righting Welfare Wrongs, which can be downloaded here.
In the second, Prof Paul Spicker discussed what could be done to improve social security under devolution. You can watch it here.
You can also find a brief introduction to Universal Basic Income here.
