Event description

Description

CES Manitoba is pleased to welcome Greg Mason, Department of Economics, University of Manitoba and PRA Inc!

The Basic Income, also known as the guaranteed annual income, has moved to centre stage again with several countries adopting the plan. Canada as been particularly active in reviewing this policy starting with the Manitoba Basic Annual Income Experiment – Mincome (1974 – 79) and more recently with the Ontario Basic Income Pilot (2017 - p).

Evaluating big policy initiatives presents a range of problems. Creating counterfactuals, controlling for confounders, and managing political expectations are just a few of the challenges presented by social experiments of this magnitude.

This presentation reviews what is meant by a basic income, the nature of the intervention, and the evaluation designs needed to assess the net impact on poverty and other outcomes. Of importance is that the goals of the basic income have broadened since the late seventies, creating more complexity for evaluators.

In addition to the scientific issues underlying the basic income, inevitable political interests create challenges for the implementation and evaluation of such large-scale policies.

Intended audience: students, evaluation professionals, policy analysts, and anyone interested in effective poverty reduction programs.
