Publication Type: Occasional Paper
Economic Theme: Public Finance

Occasional Paper 02

This annotated bibliography provides a non-exhaustive list of references which may be useful to policymakers and other actors interested in the potential of a Universal Basic Income Grant (UBI/UBIG) to disrupt structural poverty in South Africa, across a number of dimensions. Each reference is accompanied by a brief explanation of its key findings or argument.

This annotated bibliography is intended to accompany the Economic Research Southern Africa Discussion Document 03: “Can a universal basic income grant contribute to breaking structural poverty in South Africa?” The discussion document reviews a range of local and international evidence, including macroeconomic modelling, and empirical evaluations of cash transfer initiatives in predominantly low-and middle-income country contexts.
