André Gorz. Une Vie. Willy Gianinazzi. Review.

"Over the last few weeks Socialist Party contender for the Presidential 'primaries', Benoît Hamon, has raised the idea of a "revenu universal d'existence' (Basic Income) paid to all. Hearing this many people would have remembered the name of André Gorz. The Vienna born but France based journalist, social theorist, and green socialist activist, whose influence extended far beyond the francophone world, promoted this idea from the 1990s onwards. That is, "a guarantee of sufficient income, independent of the duration of labour (which can only decrease), and perhaps independent of work itself".
