Back cover text:

The current social security system is unwieldy, complex, unjust and unfit for purpose. If we were designing a system now from scratch for the 21st century, we would not end up with our present system. It is a Gordian Knot that cannot be unravelled or reformed. It must be cut through and replaced by a system fit for the 21st century. Basic Income is just such a system. It redefines the relationship between the state, society and the individual.

This innovative book provides a new perspective on Basic Income – a regular, unconditional payment to every citizen resident in the country. This comprehensive book has been rigorously researched and thus will appeal to academics and policy-makers, as well as to the general reader who is concerned about the current state of social security in the UK. Find out how Basic Income can make a difference to your life.


In this vital contribution to the debate about how we ground our welfare system more squarely on social justice, Annie Miller has done Scotland and the UK a service. It combines personal reflections with passion and technical adeptness, making the case for a Universal Basic Income powerfully in the process. Amongst many other achievements, this work presents the underarticulated feminist case for change - a vital component of the debate that should be more central. To be highly recommended.  Anthony Painter, Director of the Action and Research Centre, Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce
