dc.description.abstract Certain admirable people are campaigning for the institution of a basic income grant (BIG) in South Africa as the main policy to combat poverty.

Prior research is essential before an informed decision is possible concerning the wisdom of such a large and ongoing transfer of resources. That research has not been completed yet, nor initiated in some instances. en_US
