Universal Basic Income: What Can We Learn from Australia and South Korea?

Madison recently launched a Guaranteed Income pilot study that will give 155 families $500 a month for one year with “no strings attached”. The initiative is part of a nationwide collaboration of mayors advocating for an income floor.

In this conversation, we will hear from scholars who have been studying basic income politics in Australia and South Korea to learn more about the prospects and perils that lie ahead.
