Performing Labour’s (Non)Futures Universal basic income and the monetary imagination

Artist/Author: Christian Riley Nagler | Reference: A0843 | Type: Article

The universal basic income idea is, overall, profoundly performative, in that it attempts to model the ultimate pragmatism of wider social nets of generosity, and does so by representing the embodied conditions that might be brought into being by such generosity.
