The world economy risks recession, driven by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. Amid a global public health emergency, UBI and UBI-like interventions can be considered as part of a one-off stimulus package of policies to ameliorate its economic effects, while avoiding the heavier financial burden usually associated with UBI.
