Guest Speaker to Address Universal Basic Income


Matthew Zwolinski, professor of philosophy at the University of San Diego and founder and director of the school’s Center for Ethics, Economics and Public Policy, will present “The Case for a Universal Basic Income” at 7 p.m. Oct. 27 via Zoom.

The idea of a Universal Basic Income (UBI) gained national attention with the presidential campaign of Andrew Yang. But where did the idea come from? And does it really make economic or moral sense? In this presentation, Zwolinski will talk about the history of the UBI, the main arguments for and against it, and why it is gaining appeal not only on the political left, but among certain conservatives and libertarians as well.

Students and employees can watch the event in Baldwin Hall Auditorium while seated socially distant and wearing masks. Zwolinski’s presentation will also be available virtually via Zoom, with details to be announced closer to the presentation.
