What we're about

Basic income is a system that pays a regular income unconditionally to every individual. Come join us for a discussion about basic-income-related current events and intellectual debate about the hypothetical functioning of such a system. Our goal is to gain a deeper understanding of how or why basic income could help society, and what its limitations might be.

All viewpoints are welcome. Respectful debate is encouraged.

Anyone who is doing any work related to basic income is encouraged to share with the group.

There is a parallel meetup in Boston. Their weekly discussions are streamed live on Wednesdays at 7pm Eastern:
