“Basic Income is coming to Scotland. This will be the first basic income experiment in the UK.
First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon gave the green light to fund the experiments in September 2017. The trials are expected to begin in 2019.
I travelled to Finland to find out how the recipients of basic income’s lives have changed since receiving the payment and to see if they had any advice for Scotland’s pilot.”
