Social Policy, the Media, and Misrepresentation

By Bob Franklin | Go to book overview

My preferred option is the combination of a citizen's income for all (a modest sum guaranteed before individuals enter labour markets or households, and paid unconditionally, as the basis for personal autonomy and social justice), underpinned by all kinds of backing for local, grass-roots initiatives for economic regeneration and social support (Jordan 1998a, c). Others would have different answers: let them proclaim them loudly, soon.
