Guy Standing: How fighting climate change can deliver a universal basic income! (E743)
On this episode of Going Underground we speak to Prof. Guy Standing, the economic adviser to Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell about the economics of the proposed universal basic income and how the fight against climate change can lead to it becoming a reality. Next we speak to the editor of Rai Al-Youm, Abdel Bari Atwan, on some of the week’s top stories including Assange’s ongoing imprisonment at Belmarsh Prison, where Kristinn Hrafnsson and Pamela Anderson visited him in his first social visit since being arrested, resumed conflict between Gaza and Israel as well as Trump’s tweet to Gazans, the US ramping up tensions with Iran by sending a carrier strike group to the Persian Gulf and the West’s war on Libya leading to terrorism in 14 different countries. Finally we speak to Ambassador Joachim Bitterlich, the former NATO Permanent Representative of Germany (1998-1999) about NATO/West-Russia relations, their deterioration and who is to blame for the outbreak of a second Cold War.
