Film research on the concept of unconditional basic income.

If you win a lottery jackpot, will you stop working? Or rather, you will calmly devote your life to the work you love that perfectly suits your abilities—with a feeling of total economic security? This question has long been discussed by leading economists and politicians, entrepreneurs and sociologists. The subject matter, however, is not a winning lottery ticket, but unconditional basic income. Some perceive it as over-indulgence and a romantic utopia for the left-wing politicians, while others see it as freedom from material needs and a way to reorganize human consciousness. Filmmaker and economist Christian Todd finds new arguments to support ‘free lunches’ theory and speculates about the bright future where the labor market will no longer control people.
