  • Borgerløn/basisindkomst set i et socialistisk/centrumvenstre perspektiv

    Af Dorte Kolding, formand for BIEN Danmark. At venstrefløjen i dansk politik indtil nu har sagt nej til borgerløn/basisindkomst er for mig ret uforståeligt, da denne samfundsmodel vil kune realisere mange af venstrefløjens visioner og politikområder. Nu da Alternativet kommer med forfriskende nytænkning er det nok sandsynligt, at de kommer først med initiativer, der kan føre mod forsøg med UBI eller trædesten, der over tid kan føre til en egentlig ubetinget basisindkomst. Det vil være nærliggende, at partierne på venstrefløjen gik med i at undersøge, om en ubetinget basisindkomst kunne være den fornyelse af velfærdsstaten, vi har brug for. EL, […]

  • Hvad kan vi lære af den Schweiziske folkeafstemning om basisindkomst? erik_christensen

    Af Erik Christensen. 1. Hvor stor var nederlaget? Forslaget om indførelse af en ubetinget basisindkomst blev stemt ned, 23 % stemte for og hele 77 % stemte imod, altså et klart nederlag. Da stemmeprocenten kun var 46 %, viste det, at kun lidt over 10 % af den schweiziske befolkning støttede tanken. Til at nuancere billedet er det også værd at bemærke, at tilslutningen selvfølgelig var meget forskellig i forskellige dele af Schweiz. I nogle landlige kantoner var den kun 10 % mens den i Geneve, Basel og Bern og Zürich var 35-40 %. 2. Alligevel et imponerende resultat! Til […]

  • Miljøpartiet De Grønne og borgerløn

    – af Toke Ernstsen, politisk næstformand i Miljøpartiet De Grønne og bestyrelsesmedlem i BIEN Danmark. Basisindkomst er et politisk emne, der bliver varmere og varmere i disse år, efterhånden som offentlighedens interesse for den vokser. Ingen af de gamle partier på Christiansborg har dog lyst til at røre ved den endnu (det skulle da lige være i en amputeret udgave ud fra et neoliberalt ønske om massive offentlige besparelser), og selv nyeste skud på stammen, Alternativet, har svært ved at beslutte sig for, hvad man egentlig skal stille op med denne ‘gøgeunge’. Den lå bestemt ikke i partiets ‘rede’ ved […]
