COVID-19 Economic Recovery Strategies: Basic Income (September 2, 2020)



This webinar will address a number of issues about the design of basic income  policies, such as eligibility (universal x targeted), insertion into the social  protection system (replacement x complementarity to existing programs),  impact on the job market (beneficiary propension to work), feasibility  (are UBI possible in developing countries?), impact (what does international  experience teach us) and funding (budget-neutrality x progressive taxation).  The debate aims to provide insights for the pos-Covid-19 economic recovery strategy.
