Lift the floor: Would a Universal Basic Income guarantee a good life for all Canadians? This session in the Broadbent Institute’s 2020 Digital Convening series will first explore the origins and history of the idea of a universal income and the link between work and income. It will then assess what forms of basic income are being proposed, what UBI could mean in a market economy, and the risks of looking to UBI as a silver bullet.
Panelists: Simon Black, Professor and activist, Brock University Centre for Labour Studies; Armine Yalnizyan, Economist and Atkinson Fellow on the Future of Workers.
