The Coronavirus Slump: Goodbye rentier capitalism, hello basic income with Guy Standing

25/05/2020
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

***The event will now be taking place on Monday 25th May.***

About a decade ago Guy Standing popularised a new concept: ‘the precariat’. Having now lost any connotation of novelty, it expresses all too well the condition of chronic economic insecurity and the growing anger of the new global social underclass.

As the Covid-19 crisis is making clear, new responses to age old economic questions are on the table. As more and more countries start to look at basic income as a way out of recession Guy Standing examines the prospects for extraordinary change in extraordinary times.
