Can we afford NOT to have a BIG in South Africa? | Guy Standing
In this episode, Guy Standing, internationally renowned expert and widely published author on BIG speaks to Duma and Isobel about his experience as an advisor to President Mandela on labour market issues, as well as his view that South Africa CANNOT afford not to have a universal Basic Income Grant (UBIG) both as a recovery stimulus but also as a central pillar of a sustainable future.
He references his reasons to the many UBIG pilot studies that he has undertaken on four continents. Highly topical and extremely interesting to listen to: this episode is a historic marker in South Africa's policy deliberations.
