On What We Think
Kaleidoscope
Halcyon In Kal… 19 January 2021

 

The entries below highlight our founder Dominic's subjective views on the ever-changing range and scope of subjects that Halcyon focuses on.

This is less a blog than a set of irregularly updated and often fragmentary views - on ideas and values, places and people - evolving over time into mini essais which pay humble homage to the peerless founder of the genre. Our writing is provisional, always open to change as new thoughts and ideas emerge.

The kaleidoscope is Halcyon's prime metaphor, encouraging us to embrace change and to view issues through an ever-moving series of lenses.

Money

 

Fundamental shifts in the world of work are eroding traditional social safety nets. Could a universal basic income (UBI) be the solution? UBI isn’t a new idea, according to the Basic Income Earth Network, which  says it was originally ignored, but growing fears surrounding job automation have stoked an interest in basic income.

 

Please see below selected recent basic income-related change.

  • Italy's largest organised crime trial in decades got underway, with 355 members of the Ndrangheta mafia facing charges including murder, drug trafficking, extortion, and money laundering. The group plays a massive role in Europe's cocaine trade, prosecutors say. It took three hours just to read out the names of all the defendants at a hearing.
