內容簡介


人類社會的財富早已足夠讓每個人脫離貧困,但是,我們從未實現這一點。二戰以來,全球都在建設不同形式的福利國家,可直到今天,從東方到西方,仍有相當一部分人掙紮在貧困線以下。他們無法擁有體面的生活,無法參與公共事務。20世紀的宏觀經濟以充分就業作為主要目標之一,且將大部分福利與全職工作掛鉤。

隨著科技進步不斷節約勞動力,未來社會越來越不可能實現傳統意義上的充分就業。而對工作的理解,也將越來越與人性本身相結合,全球需要一種新的視角重構福利國家。基本收入即是當前討論得最持久而廣泛的一種選擇。

'Basic Income is an idea whose time has come, and Guy Standing has pioneered our understanding of it... Standing's analysis is vital' Paul Mason

Shouldn't everyone receive a stake in society's wealth?
Could we create a fairer world by granting a guaranteed income to all?
What would this mean for our health, wealth and happiness?

Basic Income is a regular cash transfer from the state, received by all individual citizens. It is an acknowledgement that everyone plays a part in generating the wealth currently enjoyed only by a few. Political parties across the world are now adopting it as official policy and the idea generates headlines every day. Guy Standing has been at the forefront of thought about Basic Income for the past thirty years, and in this book he covers in authoritative detail its effects on the economy, poverty, work and labour; dissects and disproves the standard arguments against Basic Income; explains what we can learn from pilots across the world and illustrates exactly why a Basic Income has now become such an urgent necessity.
