Basic income, a welfare system in which every citizen (or permanent resident) regularly receives a sum of money without conditions, is an idea that has gotten more attention in recent years in Japan. According to Hirano Hiroya, a professor, the growing debate is understandable, as social exclusion, precarity in the labor market and poverty have increased in recent decades. Two political parties support basic income: New Party Nippon and the Green Party of Japan. Japanese academics arguing for basic income are for example Toru Yamamori and Hayato Kobayashi. Ronald Dore, a British sociologist specializing in the Japanese welfare state, is also engaged in the basic income debate for many years, arguing for its implementation.
