Un entretien de Kristian Haug avec Jurgen De Wispelaere, chercheur à l’université de Bath.
Il est notamment question des mérites attendus d’un revenu de base, de la lutte contre la pauvreté, et des positions de Rutger Bregman.
To get a clear impression of the problems with current welfare policy, you only need to see the movie I, Daniel Blake. It’s not just a great movie ; for me, it’s the very reason we need UBI. The movie tells the story of a guy who falls in between systems and literally gets crushed to death by it. That is the reality, not only in the UK [where the movie plays out] where you see more and more people queuing up for food banks and losing their housing — homelessness has gone up and too many people can barely feed themselves, let alone their children — but in many other countries as well.Jurgen De Wispelaere
