Policy Droid: Universal Basic Income

A Universal Basic Income is relatively common in science fiction, thanks in large part to the ubiquity of Star Trek. The idea that people don’t need to compete for basic needs might feel futuristic but there are ways we can, and should, make that happen today.

The cast of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

We’re talking about episode six of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Shadier elements of the alpha quadrant speculate about the value of gamma quadrant artifacts, Quark holds an auction, and a space manta ray goes home. The station is also almost destroyed.

This is Androids and Assets, the podcast that discusses the political and economic assumptions in science fiction and fantasy and how they shape the world in which we live.

Errata

We were wrong about Clueless. The movie aired in 1995, the show started in 1996. There is no connection between the title of this episode and the very popular movie and TV show. We are very sorry for this error.

The wildlife painter Marshall was trying to remember is Robert Bateman.
