JFI's guaranteed income work in USA Today
USA Today covers the rapidly expanding number of pilots and policies for guaranteed income, including the Compton Pledge and the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration. The piece, by Paul Davidson, includes contributions from Steve Nunez, Halah Ahmad, and long term JFI collaborator and partner Jonathan Morduch.
“The social safety net is frayed,” says Halah Ahmad, a vice president of PR and policy communications for the Jain Family Institute, which helps design guaranteed income programs and researches their effects. “It’s not meeting people’s needs, and people are falling through the cracks.” She says those failings exact a huge cost on society.
