Reviews

The concrete proposal for reducing economic inequality makes it a good complement to Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century. This work, while certainly controversial to some readers, is a sober and well-argued study of the basic income concept.-- (03/01/2017)
What matters--what will lift the heart of every reader of Basic Income--is that Van Parijs and Vanderborght have enlisted the rigor and scruple of first-rate social science in the service of a generous social vision that is at least as old as Saint Ambrose and as up-to-date as Pope Francis. Our sensible and humane descendants--they are bound to be sensible or humane, since humanity would otherwise have long since succumbed to nuclear or environmental catastrophe--will doubtless wonder, with the easy impatience of posterity, what we were waiting for. They may, in fairness to us, decide that we were waiting for books like this.-- (05/05/2017)
Basic Income provides a rigorous analysis of the many arguments for and against a universal basic income, offering a road map for future researchers who wish to examine policy alternatives.--Marc Levinson"Wall Street Journal" (03/23/2017)
