Description: 
Facing the robotization of the economy, many on both the left and right have taken an interest in universal basic income proposals. Occupy's Alternative Banking Group has been weighing the consequences both positive and negative of UBI over a jobs guarantee as well as other means of expanding the welfare net to create a more just and more broadly rewarding and flourishing society. At this panel, we will debate these proposals to better understand their economic and human significance for the future.
