Abstract

The current controversy over the reduction in the value of working and child tax credits has raised the question as to how we can maintain household incomes at the same time as reducing employment disincentives. Here, Malcolm Torry argues that the concept of a Citizen’s Income continues to gain traction as a serious idea that could transform the benefits system.
