Universal Basic Income: A brief overview of a support for intelligent economies, quality of life and a caring society

Basic financial security should be a right for all members of society, yet our present social-welfare system does not adequately support this right and has many other serious flaws. Anne Ryan explains how a universal basic income would increase everybody’s capacity to cope with financial shocks and uncertainties far more effectively than the current system and how it would also improve general quality of life, while supporting many different kinds of work, with or without pay.

Cultivating sustainable and ethical prosperity with basic income

This paper by Anne Ryan examines the role of basic income in constructing a dynamic, diverse and democratic social economy. ‘Basic income’ means a regular, sufficient and unconditional income, administered by the state and issued to every member of society. Ryan places basic income in the context of a wider framework of important reforms and believes that it could be implemented during the current crisis in Ireland.
