01 juinKarl Widerquist, « Third Wave of the Basic Income Movement », Mercredi 13 juin

The Basic Income movement is growing incredibly. Since 2011 or 2012, more and more people around the world have been talking about the idea. To some people, it might seem to have come out of nowhere. Most people are aware that the idea has been around in one form or another for centuries, but few people might be aware that this is the third wave of the Basic Income movement. The current of period rapid growth in interest in basic income was preceded by two similar periods of rapid growth. The first happened in the early twentieth century. The second happened in the 1960s and 1970s. Looking at the third wave in historical perspective can open up valuable insights about the current movement and about how to capitalize on it. This paper discusses the basic income movement from that perspective.
