Tuesday, July 24: Annie Lowrey -- Give People Money
LGW, in partnership with Hooks Book Events and A Wider Circle, hosted an eye-opening conversation with Annie Lowrey, author of Give People Money: How a Universal Basic Income Would End Poverty, Revolutionize Work and Remake the World. Mark Bergel ('16) led a candid and thoughtful discussion with Annie, where they expanded on her global investigation of universal basic income (UBI).
