About The Event

Objective

Teachers will be able to:

– Explore causes for and solutions to persistent poverty.

– Identify the causes of a changing labor market.

Description

Learn what Thomas Paine, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Nixon and Andrew Yang have in common. UBI has long been supported as a way to streamline public benefits, and has been practiced around the world in various models.

Can such a program provide some of the inequality relief needed, and will Democrats and Republicans be able to find common ground should this idea reach Congress?  Or is this too much of a “socialist” program for the American people?
