Backlight: Money for Free
Around the globe, experiments are conducted with alternatives for the existing social security system that has become stuck. People no longer believe in centrally organised long-term planning and advocates are experimenting with handing out free money using every method thinkable. In this episode, VPRO Backlight talks about the need for social security experiments to give people the opportunity to make the most of their own talents and qualities.
