Podcast: The Welfare State and Universal Basic Income

Live cut from WHCR 90.3 FM The Voice of Harlem

Today I had a chance to sit down with renowned Social Worker & Economist at Columbia University, Irwin Garfinkel. After an hour of conversation 3 key things stuck out, his opinions on regressive and progressive taxes to produce a universal basic income, decentralized responsibility of healthcare, and the inclusion of children in a guaranteed income.
