Naomi Klein: ‘We tried it your way and we don’t have another decade to waste’

Naomi Klein: ‘We tried it your way and we don’t have another decade to waste’ | Towards Society 3.0 | Scoop.it
Suzanne Goldenberg: The climate-change movement is making little headway against corporate vested interests, says the author of Shock Doctrine. But how does she think her new book, This Changes Everything, will help galvanise people?
Xenia Orgielewski's insight:

Naomi Klein's new book,

This changes everything - Capitalism vs the climate

"It's about capitalism, not carbon".
“This book is not written for the environmental movement. It is written much more for people who would never read a book about climate change but are engaged with economic justice of other kinds.”

Xenia Orgielewski's insight:

Why we should give free money to everyone

Why we should give free money to everyone | Towards Society 3.0 | Scoop.it
We tend to think that simply giving people money makes them lazy. Yet a wealth of scientific research proves the contrary: free money helps. It is time for a radical reform of the welfare state.
Xenia Orgielewski's insight:

"The basic income - it is an idea whose time has come.
Free money as a basic human right for everyone.
A monthly allowance, enough to live off, without any outside control on whether you spend it well or whether you even deserve it. No jungle of extra charges, benefits, rebates - all of which cost tons to implement. At most with some extras for the elderly, unemployed and disabled."
Experiences all over the world show the way...
