Panel discussion on the state of UBI

October 16, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

A panel on Universal Basic Income (UBI) entitled Universal Basic Income: Transformative Policy or Utopian Fantasy? will be held on October 16 from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Parlor at Mohonk Mountain House.

As our world finds daunting problems on multiple fronts, the concept of Universal Basic Income — a policy to provide a regular income to every citizen without eligibility requirement, no questions asked — has gone from a fringe idea to the actual implementation of a variety of its versions in the last few years. There have been possible consequences and results garnered from a number of Guaranteed Income (GI) pilots, programs and even on a national scale through stimulus, pandemic relief and Child Tax Credit.

Panelists Include: Dr. Almaz Zelleke, Professor of Practice in Political Science at NYU Shanghai; Dr. Stephen Nuñez, Lead Researcher on Guaranteed Income at the Jain Family Institute; Conrad Shaw, Writer/filmmaker/UBI researcher and founder of Comingle.com and Keiko Sono, Hudson Valley based UBI advocate and founder of the Forge Collective.

This in-person event is open to the public. Registration is required. To register, visit mohonkconsultations.org.
