Basic Income, Health and Wales – Adam Jones and Public Health Network Cymru
In recent years, against a backdrop of global economic recession and subsequent austerity policies, and more recently in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a resurgence of interest in an old policy idea – basic income. This major policy idea raises many questions – where has basic income been introduced and for whom, and what can we learn from these experiences? What health impacts can we anticipate, and how will basic income impact upon the wider determinants of health? Could such a wide-reaching scheme be feasibly introduced in a devolved administration? This podcast is only available in English.
