The Monsters, Inc. Argument for Unconditional Basic Income
How to convert an economy based on fear to one based on joy. We discovered something monstrous that works, and we use it to drive our economy. We've done it for so long, we don't even question it, and we never even tested a far more powerful alternative - UBI.

Democracy and Unconditional Basic Income
This is the recorded audio of a keynote speech I wrote for my appearance on stage in Ireland at DemCon 2018. It's an argument for unconditional basic income as being a missing fundamental foundation for democracy, and how we need both working together if we're going to survive as a civilization. The text of this speech is available here: https://medium.com/basic-income/what-we-need-to-truly-thrive-democracy-and-unconditional-basic-income-ccdbe72cefa5 The slide deck I created for this presentation is available here: https://www.slideshare.net/ScottSantens/unconditional-basic-income-and-democracy For more info about UBI, please refer to my FAQ: www.scottsantens.com/basic-income-faq Support my work on Patreon: www.patreon.com/scottsantens

It’s Time for Technology to Serve all Humankind with Unconditional Basic Income
This is a keynote speech I wrote for my appearance on stage in Sweden at Oredev 2017 that I've since recorded in audiobook form. It's effectively an in-depth introductory summary to technological unemployment and the idea of unconditional basic income.

The Zombification of Intellectual Property and the Tool That Could Finally Reform It
How IP-Funded Basic Income Could Enrich the Public Domain. It's time we reduce the perceived need for intellectual property by guaranteeing everyone an unconditional basic income, and funding it as an IP dividend using royalty fees from patents and copyrights.
