About the Seminar

NOTICE: Due to the campus wide change of schedule on Monday, 11/20, with all classes to be held online, Sarah Cowan's seminar will be rescheduled for Spring 2024. Sarah did not want to miss the opportunity to visit with all Associates and Affiliates in person. We will provide an update once we have the date set.

About the Seminar

Increasingly, decision makers are turning to cash as a means of how to distribute resources as well as turning to universal interventions to reduce administrative burden. The most radical of these ideas is that of a universal basic income. In this presentation, I will present findings from a multi-disciplinary research program to investigate the effects of Alaska’s longstanding universal cash policy.
