    Panel 15: Citizen’s Basic Income; Unavoidable Future?

    • Especially; as a result of increasing dominancy of the newly developing technologies, automation, robotic applications and autonomous systems; existing professions/jobs are disappearing, resulting with not only jobless, but also unfunctional masses.
    • Considering that; similar problems are also arising, almost simultaneously, in all sectors; it is very very difficult for such masses to gain new skills and start working in new positions.
    • We have to examine these massive problems with sustainability and transformation concerns.
    • Today, “Citizen’s Basic Income” (or, as it is named in some countries; “UNCONDITIONAL UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME”), is becoming an interesting and powerful solution concept, which is being very widely discussed all around the World, regarding it’s spirit, philosophy, character, capabilities, power, feasibility, financing, economic, cultural and political dimensions.
