[Panel] Future of Work - Do We Need a Universal Basic Income?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Most people spend at least ¼ of their productive lifetimes at work. Indicators show a growth in productivity while at the same time studies have pointed out that a great proportion of it is happening due to automation. Some scenarios indicate that over the next 10 years at least 50% of all current jobs could be automated. In this context, how do we envision the future of work? In a world where the 5 richest people on earth accumulated more wealth than the 50% poorest, what are ideas and narratives of the concept of work, that help us to address the mentioned challenges?. Are our current social infrastructures up for the task? ? Could a universal basic income be a reasonable solution? Or is it only a tool for existing elites to manifest the status-quo of inequality?
