The Devil’s in the Caveats: A Brief Discussion of the Difficulties of Basic Income ExperimentsCESifo Forum (2018)
This article is a precis of my forthcoming book, "A Critical Analysis of Basic Income Experiments for Researchers, Policymakers, and Citizens: The Devil’s in the Caveats." It explains that there are many difficulties in testing UBI and many communications make the results of UBI vulnerable to misunderstanding, oversimplification, sensationalism, and spin. The book and article discuss how to reduce these problems as much as possible.
