Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

In this video two Brazilian scholars discuss about the UBI (Universal Basic Income) proposal looking for the Brazilian reality. As the economic crisis triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic continues, several countries around the globe are looking to UBI as a way to support their populations.
Comment from our editors:
Brazilian welfare system and social security institutionality are discussed in the light of UBI discussion which turned to be a hot topic during the pandemic as an important economic and social policy.
