What would you do if your income were taken care of? Globalisation, automation, Donald Trump – the middle class is falling apart. Is it time for a complete rethink? Free Lunch Society explores the increasingly popular idea of a Universal Basic Income. Just a few years ago, it would have seemed unthinkably radical but today, the idea is more imaginable than ever; and being seriously considered by many political and scientific camps. From Alaska’s oil fields to the Namibian steppes, Free Lunch Society takes us on a highly topical, thought-provoking global journey, daring us to imagine a brave new world.
