9781447311256: Money for Everyone: Why We Need a Citizen's Income

Defining a citizen’s income as a basic financial provision to which all citizens should have an unconditional right, Malcolm Torry examines its potential social and economic advantages in a British context. He argues that the establishment of a citizen’s income would reduce inequality; enhance individual freedom; improve social cohesion, family life, the economy, and the employment market; and be simple and inexpensive to administer. Informed by a comparative analysis of other countries’ approaches to poverty and inequality, Money for Everyone makes a valuable and timely contribution to current debates about the United Kingdom’s public benefits system.

About the Author:

Malcolm Torry is director of the Citizen’s Income Trust.

Review:

"Citizen's Income is a big idea whose time might at last have come. Malcolm Torry's book could play a part in making that happen. Everyone should read it."


(Hartley Dean, London School of Economics)

“Comprehensive and persuasive, this book debunks the current orthodoxies on welfare reform, and sets out a radical alternative to coercion and 'targeting'—a universal, unconditional, non-withdrawable payment for every citizen.” Bill Jordan, Plymouth University

(Bill Jordan, Plymouth University)

“Torry’s very thorough presentation is worthy of the LSE tradition to which it belongs.” (Liberal Democratic Voice)

“The author attempts to explore its implications on the economy, social cohesion, families, and the employment market.” 
(Aurelie Charles, University of Bath)

“Provides a wide ranging but general introduction for those who are new to the subject, while offering those with more familiarity a useful compendium of recent literatures and debates.” (Social Policy & Administration)
