Guaranteed Basic Income: Utopia or dystopia? (02/2018)

The idea of a guaranteed and unconditional basic income has become quite popular in many countries and finds advocats across an astonishingly broad spectrum. Is it really a desirable utopia, or more a dystopia for various reasons? Two scholars will share their rather critical perspectives with us and will engage in the discussion:


Silke Bothfeld, political scientist and Professor at the University of Applied Sciences Bremen

Karl Brenke, economist at the DIW Berlin (German Institute for Economic Research)


The discussion will be moderated by the journalist John Goetz, the NDR-editor for investigations at ARD-Hauptstadtstudio (Berlin) and a member of the investigative team at the Süddeutsche Zeitung.


Date and time: 2nd February 2018, 4 – 6 pm

Location: Berlin School of Economics and Law, Badensche Str. 52, 10825 Berlin, Room A 2.04
