Universal Basic Income

"Twenty-five years ago, a group of us – economists, philosophers, sociologists, and others – set up a network to promote discussion and advocacy of a basic income for everybody in society, as a right. We called the network BIEN, meaning then Basic Income European Network. After a few years, many more people from outside Europe were joining the network. So we renamed the network, BIEN, where the E was changed to Earth. Now we have members from all over the world, with national networks being affiliated to the international BIEN. [...] We have dealt with all the arguments thrown against the idea, and are confident that having a basic income as a social right would help provide the basic security that is essential for any market society. Remember that the idea is that it should be unconditional for all legal residents in society, regardless of a person’s work status, age or marital status."
