Universal Basic Income (UBI): A History Show more
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.
