A collection of essays by economists and political scientists, each with an interest in Austrian school arguments, Basic Income and the Free Market confronts the Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) concept. It outlines Austrian arguments for and against the BIG; critiques of Austrian theory from market-socialist and post-Keynesian perspectives that lead to defense of the BIG; critiques of BIG that consider Austrian and other heterodox theory; comparisons of the policy to proposals by others, such as Milton Friedman's negative income tax; pragmatic arguments for the policy; and proposals which discuss complex systems theory (which is embraced by 'left' and 'right' thinkers alike) and its relationship to Hayek's spontaneous order. The collection opens a dialog between Austrian and other heterodox economists as well as between 'classical liberal,' libertarian, and left-leaning or socialist political scientists and policymakers. The authors discuss whether the BIG could offer an alternative to both laissez-faire and existing welfare systems in developed countries, which are often criticized by both advocates and critics of laissez-faire, opening a constructive dialog in policy discussion. Included in this discussion is a systematic critique of pure laissez-faire interpretations of Austrian theory, and the analysis of the addition of a BIG to pure laissez-faire in the place of existing interventionist systems. Proposals making this case form the first section, followed by rebuttals and proposals against the policy, and rejoinders.

About the Author:

Guinevere Liberty Nell studies and publishes in the areas of Austrian economics, economic policy, and Soviet economic history, and worked as a tax policy analyst for five years at The Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC before earning a Master's Degree from the University of Warwick, UK, in Soviet economic history. She is the author of Rediscovering Fire and Spontaneous Order and the Utopian Collective, and editor of Basic Income and the Free Market.

Review:

"Offers a healthy diversity of opinion and thoughtful perspectives on the philosophical underpinnings, practical aspects and constraints, and a variety of possible approaches [to a Basic Income Guarantee]. Given the increasing concern about rising income inequality in the US and abroad, the volume is certainly timely. Recommended." - CHOICE

"This volume explores an important topic: what is the role, if any, of a Basic Income Guarantee in a free society? In answering this question, Basic Income and the Free Market provides a variety of perspectives and viewpoints that will be of interest to a wide range of readers, from scholars to policymakers. No matter what your ideological leanings, you will surely find something in this volume that challenges those views. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the foundations of a free society." - Christopher J. Coyne, F.A. Harper Professor of Economics, George Mason University, USA

'A real conversation starter. Austrians will be challenged by the Basic Income Guarantee, and its advocates will be challenged by Austrian theory. Guinevere Nell has opened up a new, balanced, and promising dialog.' - David Prychitko, Professor of Economics, Northern Michigan University, USA
