Hey guys, we are v. interested in the Basic Income topic and will be hosting a panel discussion between Dmytri Kleiner, Patrice Riemens and Johannes Ponader from Mein Grundeinkommen in December. Taking Dmytri's article as a starting point.

It would be good to continue this thread in the lead up to ML3.

Emne: Re: <MoneyLab> PeerValue conference review on INC MoneyLab blog

Is it time for Money/Lab to have a candid discussion about the "Basic Income” model.
This was put to the vote and defeated in Switzerland but as automation grows and is now
touching previously "white collar" middle class jobs the impetus accross the political spectrum
is to take this seriously. 

It could be that the economic impediments to implementing this might be substantive as 
well as ideological. Would Money/Lab be a place for a candid examination of the different models being
proposed and what the practical challenges that would be in introducing it.

MoneyLab was present at the PeerValue Conference last week in Amsterdam and wrote an article about it called On-Demand Economy: More Regulations and Non-Profits Apps Needed to Build a Fairer Future. 

"Airbnb and Uber have recently been standing center stage in the international media theater. These dominant network platforms linking sellers and buyers bring new challenges to the field of the so-called collaborative economy and raise serious concern in terms of taxation, job security, healthcare insurance or work compensation. “When you get rid of governments but not of corporations, they grow out of control”, said media theorist and best-selling author Douglas Rushkoff."
