Is a basic income feasible? An OECD perspective

Time: 16.6.2017 at 9.00–11.00 AM (Finnish time)
Place: Kela main office building, Auditorium (Nordenskiöldinkatu 12, Helsinki) or online

Social security reform is a topic of major political interest in most OECD countries. The aim is to build in stronger incentives and to respond better to emerging social challenges. One of the options proposed is a basic income, currently being tested in Finland. Similar trials are underway in several other countries.

With the help of the EUROMOD microsimulation model, the OECD has studied the feasibility of a basic income in certain OECD countries, including Finland.

Herwig Immervoll, a senior economist at the OECD, discusses the study and its findings as well as looks at the feasibility of a basic income, analyses its strengths and weaknesses, and considers who would win and who would lose under a basic income scheme. The seminar will be held in English.
