Globalisation, automation, Donald Trump. The middle class is falling apart. Time for a complete rethink. Just a few years ago, an unconditional basic income was considered a pipe dream. Today, this idea is more imaginable than ever before, and intense discussions are taking place in all political and scientific camps. Free Lunch Society provides the background to this idea and searches for explanations, possibilities and experiences regarding its implementation. An unconditional basic income means money for everyone - as a human right without service in return.

Screened as part of the Right Now Film Festival

The screening is followed by a Q&A session with Charlie Young, writer on basic income, economics and the environment, and associate at the RSA.
