Scott Santens

Senior Advisor
Humanity Forward

Scott has been researching and advocating for the concept of unconditional universal basic income (or UBI) since 2013.

Acknowledged by former U.S. presidential candidate Andrew Yang as one of those who helped shape his thinking, he has lived with a basic income floor via Patreon since 2016 which has enabled him to focus full-time on popularising the concept ever since.

He is currently the Senior Advisor for Humanity Forward and also serves on the board of directors of the Gerald Huff Fund for Humanity and as the editor of Basic Income Today – a daily UBI news hub.

His debut book about UBI and how to pay for it, is titled Let There Be Money.
