About Us

Citizen Futures is a conversation to help people think about the future and their role in it. This podcast allows us—that’s you and me—to explore today's trends across technology, society, and politics. The aim is to consider how these forces may shape our collective future. Just as democracy needs active citizens to function, I believe the future can be improved through more participation. I hope you’ll join us as Citizens of the Future!

Latest Episodes

Ep. 1 - Universal Dividends: A Commons Solution for Inequality and Pollution (ft. Peter Barnes)

The U.S. currently faces the greatest levels of inequality since The Great Depression. And these numbers are getting worse. What's to be done? If you ask Peter Barnes, we need to start properly charging for the access to and the use of our nation's common assets. This untapped vehicle would provide billions of dollars in revenue to the government.The money raised would then be redistributed universally (to all). "Communally inherited assets"include things like oil, coal, fisheries, timber, the limited capacity of our atmosphere to absorb pollutants, as well as "gifts of society", such as our legal and financial infrastructure. There is a precedent here in our own country, the Alaskan Permanent Fund has been paying dividends to it's constituents since 1982, and Texas uses their oil-funded program to help pay for public education. The best part: This system curbs pollution while reducing income inequality.
