From Basic Income Christiansborg 22 sept 2016 Debate 3 - with Nicole Teke (France) in the Panel.
Since the end of 2015, the idea of a basic income has been steadily gaining ground in France, especially in the political sphere as well as in the media, and might even be a hot topic for the elections of 2017 (presidential and general).
This surge of interest has particularly been driven by two major reports that were handed out to the government: the National Digital Council’s report on job loss due to growing automation and a welfare commission report, the latter leading Prime Minister Manuel Valls to declare himself in favour of the idea of a universal basic income, which may lead to experiments being implemented by 2018.
The presentation will also discuss the experiments that are planned for the Aquitaine region, one, unanimously decided by the Aquitaine Regional Council, and to be launched in June 2017, with levels of basic income around the minimum wage, and another in an eco-village involving a form of local currency.
