Authors in candid, live conversation reflect on the topics that matter most during this unprecedented time. In this presentation, authors and experts discuss the case for universal basic income. Even before the job displacement effects of COVID-19, wage and salary income has become less reliable, fueling the case for a citizen wage. From worker rights to social protections, and much more, this discussion will explore the implications—and questions—of a universal basic income strategy. Tune in each day of the Festival to hear new speakers in critical conversation about the topics shaping today’s new world.

Featuring panelists: Evelyn Forget, Sheila Regehr and Andy Stern

Moderator: Nadine Yousif
