Reviews

"The book is full of enlightening argument, and particularly compelling is a method which sets out from a situation in which a Basic Income has been implemented and then studies a situation in which it has been abolished." - Citizen's Income Newsletter

"Overall, the book is a major contribution to the liberal egalitarian literature on basic income." - Ethical Perspectives
