As universal basic income (UBI) is popping up as an issue in the Liberal Democrat leadership contest between Jo Swinson and Ed Davey, now seems a good time to revive an early pilot episode of the Never Mind The Bar Charts podcast I do with Stephen Tall, first released in February.
Welcome to the third, and still possibly last [spoiler: it wasn’t], pilot edition of a new political podcast featuring former Lib Dem Voice editor Stephen Tall and, er…, former Lib Dem Voice editor Mark Pack.
We may still be without a name, and I may still be mostly succeeding in stopping Stephen talking about Brexit, but this time we do kick off with a policy discussion: the pros and cons of a universal basic income.
A few follow-up links for what we discussed:
- Finnish universal basic income trial and thoughts from my time on a policy working group looking at the subject
- Nick Barlow’s blog post on new parties
- Why I like ideology
