The Town with No Poverty II: An Interview with Evelyn Forget

Professor Evelyn Forget
The above is an interview with Evelyn Forget, who studied the outcome of a basic income experiment in Dauphin, Manitoba, Canada. An extract from there:
"I am heartened by the fact that many of the best changes we’ve made in social assistance over time have looked much like guaranteed income, although they focused only on small groups in the population. In Canada, low income seniors receive a Guaranteed income supplement which is like a guaranteed income for old people. People with dependent children receive a national child benefit, which is like a guaranteed income for people with dependent children. Neither of these are as large as they should be, but they exist. I think the next step is to look at a guaranteed income for the rest of us."
