Re-democratizing the Economy

The 2014 15th International Congress of the Basic Income Earth Network is coming up. The congress title is “Re-democratizing the Economy.” See our congress site at:

It will occur:
Friday June 27th to Sunday June 29th, 2014, at the
McGill Faculty of Law, Montreal, Quebec

The theme of the congress intends to address the recent global economic crisis, and the dominant austerity response of national and international governing bodies. Some writers suggest this approach has vastly increased economic inequality, poverty, financial insecurity and social exclusion across the globe. Individuals and families in both the developing and developed world are experiencing tremendous vulnerability and powerlessness against an economy seemingly spiraling out of control. Many believe the time has now come to radically rethink our response to the crisis and its resulting precariousness, and the structural organization of the economic fabric in our societies.

The 2014 BIEN Congress aims to explore the role a universal and unconditional basic income could play in re-democratizing our economy.

There will also be a Preconference Workshop Day on Thursday June 26th, 2014. This day is optional and is also the 13th annual North American Basic Income Guarantee (NABIG) Congress.

Registration for the congress can occur through a Pal Pay payment or through Eventbrite linked from the congress page below.
