Basic income advocate

Imagine a society in which every citizen was paid an income to cover their essential needs. How would this work? Could this be what it takes to end extreme poverty?

Economic commentator and former banker Frances Coppola is a leading thinker on economics and a regular contributor to Forbes and the Financial Times. Disgusted by what she describes as a “shocking waste of human capital” in our society, she has become a passionate advocate for a universal basic income.

At Meaning, Frances helped us understand the controversial concept of a non-means-tested flat rate payment for all citizens, and its potential to unlock untapped creativity and entrepreneurship in our society.
