UBI arrives in Europe!

Dear friend,

Three European countries are about to set up experiments on the Unconditional Basic Income: Finland, Holland and France. This shows that the UBI begins to be considered in Europe as a serious solution to the crisis of growth and employment. The European example could be an asset when, in one year about, the Swiss initiative will be voted. It will show to the people of the country that the UBI is not an utopia, but a realistic project which answers a real need.


Happy reading!
