Should a Universal Basic Income be part of the New Zealand Political Project?

Should a Universal Basic Income be part of the New Zealand Political Project?

Drawing on material from his book, The New Zealand Project, Max Harris makes the case for a universal basic income (UBI) pilot in New Zealand.  He examines the arguments for and against a UBI, using a values-based framework; explains why piloting a UBI is justified and valuable; and recounts the lessons we can take from Finland's experience so far with developing its UBI pilot.
