The global politics podcast at the end of the End of History. From a left perspective.

Excerpt: /90/ Work, Bitch ft. Amber A’Lee Frost

October 3, 2019
On UBI and social reproduction.
 
Following on from ep. 88 where we discussed post-work with Anton Jäger, we have Amber on to talk about her recent article in Jacobin on Andrew Yang's proposals for a Universal Basic Income. Is a citizen under a UBI regime really assimilable to a mid-century American housewife? How free is either? Does fully automated luxury communism put too much emphasis on luxury and not enough on communism? And would UBI lead to a more or less alienated society?
