Dr Malcolm Torry
"We should give the same money to everyone, every resident, unconditionally"
Malcolm is honorary Director of the Citizen’s Income Trust, with first degrees in mathematics, theology, philosophy, and economics and management, and higher degrees in social policy and in theology.
His theory is that every single mainstream ideology is in favour of a Citizen’s Income, an unconditional, nonwithdrawable income paid to every individual as a right of citizenship. The same amount for every child, the same amount for every working age adult, and the same amount for every pensioner, whatever the individual’s income, household structure, marital status, or employment status. It is nonwithdrawable: so if someone earns additional income then their Citizen’s Income does not change.
As well as being a leading economist, he is Vicar of Holy Trinity, Greenwich Peninsula.
