Abstract

The article shows the potential of the basic income idea for cutting across the poles of the contemporary political topography and manifesting itself as a viable and forceful political idea. To this end, we use the Danish discursive political landscape from the 1970s until the 1990s as an empirical case. In a diachronic perspective, the Danish case highlights all the contradictions mentioned above: neoliberal tendencies versus universal welfare state elements, increasing levels of social inequality (precarity) and an oscillating popularity of the life cycle of basic income in the Danish political landscape with mixed roles played by both liberals and socialists
