Sukhi Samra: Early Results From The Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration

The Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration (SEED) has drawn national attention as a modern basic income trial. Recently, we got the first reports from basic income recipients there, who are receiving $500 a month for 18 months. The results back up a lot of what we’ve already seen from cash transfer trials, but we also have some powerful stories of personal transformation, enabled by the extra cash. These stories provide compelling first hand accounts of what a little economic security can do. Sukhi Samra, Director of SEED, joined the podcast to talk about what we’ve seen so far in Stockton.
