Recent articles on Citizen’s Income

Lauren Razavi has written a thorough description and discussion of a Citizen’s Income in the New Statesman: ‘A Citizen’s Income of £71 a week would make Britain fairer’. The article references Citizen’s Income Trust publications.

David Wild has written an equally interesting but very different article in Demos Quarterly: ‘In Praise of a Citizen’s Income’. This is based on older literature from Andre Gorz and Bertrand Russell, and on Sam Bowman’s recent article for the Adam Smith Institute.

We are pleased to see so much media interest in a Citizen’s Income. What we now need is government interest in this important idea, and a subsequent widespread and well-informed public debate.
