A Basic Income Grant for South Africa
Guy Standing, Michael SamsonISBN: 1919713867;
Providing a critical analysis of the feasibility and impact of a universal basic income grant for South Africans, which has been discussed extensively in parliament and the media for the past two years, this book assesses how comprehensive social security reform, including a universal grant, will impact inequality in the country and promote economic growth and employment. Revealed is that the grant is affordable, and an argument is made that it would reduce the criminality that is associated with povertyand inequality. The considerable implications for women and children and for the black majority are also considered.
