Product Description

This resource from Graeme Mitchell at SustainEd introduces learners to the highly relevant topic of Universal Basic Income and complements Rutger Bregman’s TED Talk, “Poverty isn’t a lack of character; it’s a lack of cash.” The resource includes a printable worksheet and teacher’s guide, and also comes with an online Google Slides option which is compatible with Google Classroom.  The captivating TED Talk explores the controversial idea that many experts are now advocating floating to combat poverty - a universal basic income. Bregman argues that a regular cash grant to every single person, given unconditionally, to support them and provide a minimum standard of living, is perhaps the most effective way to deal with poverty. The TED Talk, guide, class discussion, and ‘more to explore’ option are all designed to be completed in one class period.  This resource can also be used to supplement student learning or assigned as homework/extra credit. This turn-key guide is also ideal for substitute teachers and requires no pre-planning.

From TED:

Rutger Bregman is one of Europe's most prominent young thinkers. "Ideas can and do change the world," says historian Rutger Bregman, sharing his case for a provocative one: guaranteed basic income. Learn more about the idea's 500-year history and a forgotten modern experiment where it actually worked -- and imagine how much energy and talent we would unleash if we got rid of poverty once and for all.
