"Back in September of 2016, I did an interview for Forbes about a fully
universal unconditional basic income and to this day I think it remains
one of my better summaries of UBI for those new to the idea, and even
those familiar with the idea. It succinctly covers most of the main
points and I think can be a useful way of introducing people to UBI, so
I’ve recorded the interview as a podcast and hopefully more people will
find it by listening to it.
When it comes to work, we as a society have a serious problem with how
we look at it. We don’t look at all the work going on that’s unpaid as
work, even though it’s arguably the most important kind of work. Think
of care work and volunteering in our communities and the open-source
movement, and even art. All of this work is valuable but unpaid."
