Abstract

The proposition of a Universal Basic Income, or UBI – a right for all to basic monetary security – needs to be rescued from three contemporary discourses linked with polemicism, populism and reductionism. These three problems are all accentuated by an Opportunity Paradox, as UBI has hit the political space at a time of rising inequality, nationalism, and public austerity that are not suitable contexts for basic income reform.
