Murray on the basic income guarantee

Yesterday, I linked to a couple of essays on the basic income guarantee idea as propounded by a leftist writer. I wanted to follow up with a couple of resources for Charles Murray, the controversial libertarian writer who also is an advocate for the idea.

Here are 10 questions for Murray, a reasonably-sized article which offers an introduction to some of his ideas. And here is an hour-long C-Span video from 2006 in which he discusses his advocacy of a basic income, also explored in his book, In Our Hands: A Plan to Replace the Welfare State.  (Apparently I can't embed the video, I can only link to it.)

Here is a New Yorker article about Murray shocking a conservative conference by expressing support for gay marriage.
