We unpick the concept of a universal basic income (UBI) and why the idea of the state giving money with no strings attached to all of its citizens is finding support from both the left and the right of the political spectrum. Could UBI replace the welfare system? Would individuals become lazy or innovative with their newfound freedom? Host Luisa Porritt is joined by Stephen Lloyd, Victoria Collins and Pedro Sousa.
