Re: <nettime> <MoneyLab> PeerValue conference review on INC MoneyLab blog

Is it time for Money/Lab to have a candid discussion about the "Basic
Income" model.

This was put to the vote and defeated in Switzerland but as automation
grows and is now touching previously "white collar" middle class jobs
the impetus accross the political spectrum is to take this seriously.

It could be that the economic impediments to implementing this might
be substantive as well as ideological. Would Money/Lab be a place for
a candid examination of the different models being proposed and what
the practical challenges that would be in introducing it.

   "Airbnb and Uber have recently been standing center stage in the

   sellers and buyers bring new challenges to the field of the so-called

   job security, healthcare insurance or work compensation. "When you get
