Universal Basic Income (UBI): A History
Basic income is a concept that has existed in various forms, under various names, since the days of the Enlightenment. Political economist Philipe Van Parijs defined basic income as “an income paid by a government, at a uniform level and at regular intervals, to each adult member of society. The grant is paid, and its level is fixed, irrespective of whether the person is rich or poor, lives alone or with others, is willing to work or not.”
