What would you do if your income were taken care of?
Receiving public funds just for being alive may seem a far-fetched idea, but the concept of Universal Basic Income (UBI) has been gathering steam, with several trials set to take place in Scotland within the next couple of years.
What used to be perceived as a utopian dream has been espoused by entrepreneurs, economists and philosophers from across the political spectrum and touted as the next embodiment of true democracy. But what shape would it take – and would everyone be better off?
Spanning contemporary and historical perspectives, this playful documentary brings to life what could be one of the most radical changes to our lives.
BEYOND THE SCREEN
Join us after the film to explore the changes that the introduction of Universal Basic Income (also known as Citizens Basic Income) could bring to our lives in Scotland.
