#8 Anthony Painter - Universal Basic Income. Is our current version of capitalism working or is there a better way?

Director of the Action & Research Centre at the RSA, Anthony Painter discusses his proposal for bringing Universal Basic Income into the UK.

There is a huge body of evidence supporting what he is saying so I encourage you to look it up and continue the conversation.
