With the ongoing automation of work and the current crisis in global capitalism that keeps chopping away at working class incomes, does a universal income provide an answer?

LOCATION: ABF3 (Arts Building, first floor, room 3). RHUL.

Backed by the Green Party, various far-left groups, economists like Paul Krugman and campaigns across the EU, there is a growing movement for a guaranteed income provided for citizens. There is even a pending referendum on implementing such a system in Switzerland.

Is a Universal Income possible? Will it deter people from working, or will it provide an answer to an increasingly technology reliant world?

Elliot and Seth from the Thames Valley branch of ‘Plan C’ make the argument for a Universal Basic Income to RHUL Left Forum.

All are welcome to join us!
