The Liberal Case for a Basic Income

The Washington Post‘s Wonkblog held a debate on basic income in December with Mike Konczal, Max Sawicky, Megan McArdle, and Veronique de Rugy. Konczal, who has written thoughtfully in favor of basic income, posted Sawicky’s remarks–“The Liberal Case Against Basic Income” on–his Rortybomb blog a few weeks later. BINews posted my response–“The Liberal Case for a Basic Income”–today.
