The Basic Income Podcast hosts Michael Stynes & Stephen Nuñez
As the roll-out of the Maricá basic income policy continues, Stephen Nunez and Michael Stynes spoke with The Basic Income Podcast’s hosts Jim Pugh and Owen Poindexter about the policy’s implications for the larger debate on basic income.
It was great to discuss what macroeconomic effects we can measure in the particularly unique context of Maricá, and the reasons this policy roll-out represents one of the most extensive implementations of unconditional cash transfer thus far. Among other reasons, the policy is notable for its scale and amount, for disbursement in local currency, and because disbursements are given per individual, not per household. See our press release here for more about the policy and our research in Maricá.
