Annie Lowrey writes about economic policy at The Atlantic and is the author of the new book, “Give People Money: How a Universal Basic Income Would End Poverty, Revolutionize Work, and Remake the World.”

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Lowrey and Ben Domenech discuss the war on poverty, technology, the future of work, and what would happen if we gave everyone $1000.

“I think it is good to set back and look at what problem you are trying to solve,” Lowrey said. “Why don’t we talk about the elimination of poverty, especially for kids, as being a big policy priority?”
