How does the concept of a Net Basic Income (NBI) work, which Bernhard Neumärker presented in Susanne Wiest’s Bundestag petition for a basic income in times of crisis (October 2021)? What can be learned from the discussions with parliamentarians in the Committee on Petitions, and what should we make of the support that the petition received from a considerable section of the population? How could the NBI be transformed into a fully-fledged Basic Income in post-crisis times, and what role could environmental taxes play in financing a UBI?

Together with the UBI activist, Susanne Wiest, the scientists Bianca Blum and Bernhard Neumärker will be presenting the results of their work with an eye to the future. The event will be moderated by Enno Schmidt, and the language will be English. Bernhard Neumärker and Bianca Blum’s contributions will be based in part on two papers they published this summer.

On 07 October 2021 at 6 pm (CEST). Duration: Approx. 90 minutes.
