Big Idea: A Basic Income for Northern Ireland
Posted on August 18, 2016 by Micheál Collins
NICVA held a Festival of Economics in Belfast on Friday August 12th.
Among the big ideas discussed was Basic Income.
The slides below are from my 2014 presentation to a NICVA masterclass on Basic Income. They explore the issue in the context of Northern Ireland, looking at the levels, costs, and likely challenges. They should also serve as a useful starting point for further work in this area. It seems, given the audience in attendance, that there is ongoing interest in the topic.
