In the five years since Money for Everyone was published the idea of a Citizen’s Basic Income has rocketed in interest to an idea whose time has come.

In moving the debate on from the desirability of a basic income this fully updated and revised edition now includes comprehensive discussions on feasibility and implementation.

Using the consultation undertaken by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales as a basis, Torry examines a number of implementation methods for Citizen’s Basic Income and considers the cost implications.

Including real-life examples from the UK, data from case studies and pilots in Alaska, Namibia, India, Iran and elsewhere, this is the essential research-based introduction to the Citizen’s Basic Income.
Dr Malcolm Torry has been Director of the Citizen's Basic Income Trust since 2001 (and was Director before that between 1988 and 1992), and he is also a Visiting Senior Fellow at the London School of Economics. He has written several books on the subject of Citizen’s Basic Income and has also written extensively on religious and faith-based organisations.
