Universal Basic Income-What is it and can it revolutionize our approach to poverty and work?
Please join Leadership Greater Washington, A Wider Circle, and Hooks Book Events, on Tuesday, July 24, for 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) will sit down with Annie to discuss her global investigation of universal basic income (UBI), which many economists believe could end decades of income inequality and restore social stability and mobility. Lowrey will share her idea of giving every citizen an annual stipend, no questions asked—and why, in an age of rapid automation, it might just be our best hope. Guests are invited to participate in an audience Q&A following the interview.
We look forward to sharing in this compelling and timely discussion, that will draw attention to the issue of income inequality and create a dialogue for how we as a region can practice income equity.
