    Episode 62: Money with No Strings Attached – Is “Grundeinkommen” a good idea for Germany? Common Ground


Times are hard, but is money provided unconditionally by the government the best way to ease the burden? Pilots in three federal states are planned soon to test the feasibility of a universal basic income in Germany and host Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson talks about that and the German plan to overhaul social and unemployment benefits with guests:
Alexandra Borchardt, veteran journalist and media consultant.
Jürgen Schupp, Senior Research Fellow at the German Institute for Economic Research.
Laura Brämswig, co-founder of the German project Expedition Basic Income.
This show was produced by Dina Elsayed.
