about this item

Basicincome is an innovative, powerful egalitarian response to widening globalinequalities and poverty experiences in society, one that runs counter to theneoliberal transformations of modern welfare states, social security, and labormarket programs. This book is the first collective volume of its kind to askwhether a basic income offers a viable solution to the income support systemsin Australia and New Zealand. Though often neglected in discussions of basicincome, both countries are advanced liberal democracies dominated by neoliberaltransformations of the welfare state, and therefore have great potential toadvance debates on the topic. The contributors' essays and case studies explorethe historical basis on which a basic income program might stand in these twocountries, the ideological nuances and complexities of implementing such apolicy, and ideas for future development that might allow the program to be putinto practice regionally and applied internationally.
