01: Basic income or welfare state?

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

We are facing big social challenges. How can these challenges be met? Is a radically new set-up towards basic income needed or does it suffice to refine the welfare state? Would a basic income halt the increasing gap between rich and poor or would it lead to the government pulling back from its social responsibilities?
