About the Book
There are a seemingly endless number of books, articles, and documentaries addressing the array of challenges confronting humanity and our ecosystem. This book shows how a guaranteed livable income (aka universal basic income) is a practical economic solution that embraces and enhances individual freedom, health, democracy, education, skills, problem-solving, innovation, and the environment. Through a blend of personal anecdotes, speculative economic analysis, and research, this book delves into the many potential impacts of implementing such an initiative. It explores how this concept could shape various dimensions of our world - from society and communities to families and individuals. This work extends an open invitation to become part of a movement that has the potential to steer us away from the path of destruction and towards a livable future.
About the Author
Over the last couple of decades, C.A. Delle has been writing, reading, and talking to hundreds of people from varied backgrounds and political affiliations about the concept of a guaranteed livable income. As someone outside academia, part of her “research,” so to speak, involved (unfortunately) firsthand experience enduring the welfare system for several years as a single mother, followed by more years doing emergency welfare advocacy for others. Learning about the experiences and lives of fellow “nobodies” caught in the gears of a dysfunctional economic system is what led her to focus on this topic. She is originally from rural Northern Alberta currently residing on Vancouver Island.
