We think you might be interested in an upcoming Wales in London event we are holding in partnership with IWA and Cardiff University.

In a time when the fantasy of AI taking over basic human jobs is fast becoming a reality, is now the time to look for new ways to replace the current tax and benefits system.  Or should Universal Basic Income really be universal, and if so, can it work in Wales?

Following on from the success of last year’s economy debate “Why is Wales’ economic development struggling to keep up with its neighbours?”, the IWA, Cardiff University and Wales in London team come together for a second debate focusing on the economy in Wales.
Debate chaired by David Phillips, The Institute for Fiscal Studies  

Anna Coote, Principal Fellow, New Economics Foundation
Polly Mackenzie, Chief Executive, Demos
Calvin Jones, Deputy Dean for Public Value and External Relations, Cardiff University
Mark Hooper, Founder, Indycube

Tickets are £40 including drinks and canapes.
