Video: Guy Standing & Yanis Varoufakis on Basic Income – And How We Can Make It Happen

‘Shouldn’t everyone receive a stake in society’s wealth? Could we create a fairer world by granting a guaranteed income to all? What would this mean for our health, wealth and happiness?’

The Centre for Postcapitalist Civilisation, mέta, organised on Tuesday 21 September 2021 a discussion between Guy Standing and Yanis Varoufakis on the necessity of Basic Income – And How We Can Make It Happen. Moderation: Sotiris Mitralexis. The event was co-organised by mέta, Athens’ Numismatic Museum and Papasotiriou Publishing, apropos the publication of Guy Standing’s book ‘Basic Income: And How We Can Make It Happen’ in Greek (Papasotiriou 2021, foreword by Yanis Varoufakis).
