How is a basic income (BI) linked to growth and ecological sustainability? Should it be financed from more production, natural resource rents or green taxes? Should a BI be introduced globally rather than in the already rich countries? There is a case on equity grounds for linking a BI to ecological taxes and degrowth in the overconsuming societies, but to use BI as a tool for improving production in poverty struck regions.
