This week on Dialogos Radio, we will be featuring an interview, as part of the Dialogos Interview Series, with Christos Zoumboulidis of the Greek team for the Basic Income Initiative in Europe. This movement was established in Europe in 2013, and it supports the establishment of an unconditional basic income (UBI) or “citizen’s income” that would be guaranteed for all European citizens, regardless of their employment status or any other income that they receive. This minimum income would serve as a safeguard against poverty for all citizens. This movement organized a petition throughout the European Union last year, and is active in a number of European countries, including Greece. In this interview, Zouboulidis will talk about this initiative, its economic and theoretical basis, about the current efforts to promote this as a policy initiative in the European Union, and about the upcoming Athens Summit which will be organized in Athens later in September, and which will bring together key economists and supporters of this initiative from throughout Europe.
In addition to this interview, we will be featuring a special musical dedication to one of the greatest singers and voices in Greek musical history, Stelios Kazantzidis, on the occassion of the 13th anniversary of his passing (September 14, 2001). This feature will include some of his music, as well as facts and information about his life and musical career.
