Do we need a Universal Basic Income?

From the filmmaking team of "The Future of Work and Death" comes "The Cost of Living," a documentary that explores the current socio-economic state of Britain and considers how the idea of a basic income could minimize poverty and alleviate the sociological toll of a growing precarious class. The film focuses on the feasibility of a basic income, John Rawls' theory of justice, automation and ultimately asks should there still be a cost attributed to survival?

Featuring George Monbiot, David Graber, Diane Coyle, Guy Standing & Annie Miller
