If you received $1000 per month, no strings attached, how would you spend your time? In this episode, we discuss the concept of universal basic income. We cover some of its potential psychological consequences for the individual and the value of work itself. The conversation turns toward what makes a job viable or not, how to enrich jobs, and the question of whether or not a significant portion of the population would “coast” or spend irresponsibly if given an unconditional monthly stipend.   Timestamps: 1:40: Defining Universal Basic Income 8:52: The future of undesirable jobs under UBI 13:08: Making nonviable jobs better 17:05: Takeaways and overall impressions 21:42: The case against UBI   Mentioned This Episode: mindyourworkpodcast@gmail.com – Email us your ideas here!
