From a universal basic income to a 15-hour workweek, from a world without borders to a world without poverty – it’s time to return to utopian thinking.
Historian and author Rutger Bregman writes about history, philosophy and economics. His book History of Progress(2013) was awarded the Belgian Liberales prize for best non-fiction. The book Utopia for Realists has been a catalyst for the discussion of a universal basic income that was quickly picked up by the international media. That book is to be translated into 22 languages. As a journalist, he writes regularly for De Correspondent and his work has been featured by The Washington Post, The Guardian and the BBC.
