Unconditional basic income: where the dream is already a reality

 Surprise - Switzerland 06 June 2019

Following the 5 June vote to introduce an unconditional basic income of 2500 Swiss Francs (CHF), [€2265/ $2530/£1700] a month in Switzerland, Surprise examines how similar basic income initiatives have fared around the world; from a large scale experiment in a Canadian town during the 70s to a current raffle-style crowdfunding platform in Germany that gives winners $1000 a month for one year. (2090 Words) - By Beat Camenzind
