Basic Income for All – And Other Ways to Close the Income Gap

April 30 @ 6:00 pm

Lightly regulated capitalism leads to boom-bust cycles that threaten the livelihood of the middle class and poor in times of crisis.

Could raising income taxes for the wealthy fund new programs and help reduce income inequality? Could universal basic income combat poverty? Is guaranteed income – a guarantee that all citizens or families have an income sufficient to live on, provided they meet certain conditions – a solution?

We will discuss these and other policy ideas with Lynn Parramore, senior research analyst at the Institute for New Economic Thinking, and Dr. Darrick Hamilton, executive director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity.

Moderated by Dr. Trevor Brown, dean of the John Glenn College of Public Affairs.
