An Open Collection Of Universal Basic Income Studies, Projects & Organisations.
Are you looking to learn more about the universal basic income (UBI) movement? You’ve come to the right place. And you’re not alone. The number of Google searches for universal basic income related terms have increased fivefold in the last five years alone. It’s not surprising, given the increase in inequality we’ve seen over the past few years.
GoodDollar is a research initiative at the intersection of UBI and blockchain technology, looking to reduce global financial inequality. We’re developing and launching a new protocol for generating and distributing universal basic income and we‘re always on the lookout for new studies, researchers and organizations that drive this emerging field forward.
In this post, we’d like to share all the essential materials we feel are great resources for any UBI enthusiast or even a beginner looking to learn more — feel free to share your feedback and check back for updates!
