Guy Standing, Professorial Research Associate at SOAS and co-founder of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN), will be joining us this Thursday (1st February) for an exciting talk about universal basic income. Standing’s best-known book is ‘The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class’ (2011), in which he blames globalisation for having plunged more and more people into the precariat class. His many other books include ‘Basic Income: A Transformative Policy for India’ (2015) and ‘The Corruption of Capitalism: Why Rentiers Thrive and Work Does Not Pay’ (2016). Standing has been a consultant for the UN and the World Bank, and he worked with SEWA (India’s largest women’s trade union) for many years. He has also written many articles – look at this one if you fancy a preparatory read about universal basic income… https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jan/12/universal-basic-income-finland-uk
