Join us in Room 3-077 for an interactive evening of debate and discussion.
All are welcome to attend to discuss the following topic for the evening:
What Should We Say about a Partial Basic Income?
A ‘full’ basic income is a regular, unconditional payment from the state that would be sufficient to live a frugal but decent lifestyle without supplementary income. A ‘partial’ basic income is a regular, unconditional payment at a lower level. In Basic Income Ireland, we have concentrated on presenting the case for a full basic income. But many of the current proposals for a basic income are for a lower level of payment – one that would have to be supplemented by paid work or other state benefits to provide a decent standard of living. What do you think about those? Do the arguments in favour of basic income still apply? Come to April’s meeting to help think through the issues.
