The Basics of Basic Income – Dr. Evelyn Forget

Printer-friendly version

In this webinar video, Dr. Evelyn Forget describes basic income as a regular, predictable and unconditional payment that everyone would receive. All adults, whether they’re working or not working, whether their income is low or high. And that’s a very expensive proposition. But the idea is that the government would receive back some of the costs of delivering that basic income through the tax system, it would be a taxable benefit. That’s never gained a lot of traction – that is the version of basic income in Canada.
