Mick Clifford Podcast: Anne Ryan - when enough is plenty

The public health emergency and lockdown has for many people provided space to reflect on how we are living as a society.

Are our priorities as they should be? How do we measure success? Is there a better, more sustainable way of living?

Ten years ago university lecturer Anne Ryan attempted to answer some of these questions in a groundbreaking and prescient book, Enough Is Plenty.

Anne is also a co-ordinator in the organisation, Basic Income Ireland, which advocates for a system of Universal Basic Income. On the podcast she explains her philosophy and where it has been put into practice with some encouraging results.
