Reviews

"The Alaska Permanent Fund has reached its 30th anniversary and is one of the world's unsung innovations in social and economic policy. It offers a route to income redistribution and prompts realistic thoughts of more ambitious schemes to provide universal basic income security. This book is an important contribution to what should be a much more widespread debate about the Fund's role and potential." - Guy Standing, professor of Economic Security, University of Bath

"A wide-ranging and enjoyable romp through a great deal of intellectual territory . . . An excellent and long overdue examination of a significant and unique government program." - Eastern Economic Journal
