Unconditional Basic Income - A Conversation with Scott Santens

Making a Liberation-Focused Case for UBI


Acknowledged by Andrew Yang in his book The War on Normal People as one of those who helped shape his thinking, and described by historian Rutger Bregman as "by far, the most effective basic income activist out there," Scott Santens has lived with a crowdfunded basic income since 2016 and has been researching and advocating for UBI around the world since 2013. He is currently serving on the board of directors of the Gerald Huff Fund for Humanity and is the editor of Basic Income Today, a daily UBI news hub. In 2020, he served as Senior Policy Advisor to Mike Broihier in his campaign for US Senate against Mitch McConnell and is now advising mayors around the US on their cities' guaranteed income pilots, including in his home city of New Orleans.
