Abstract: Basic Income and its distribution is today a very disputed question. Social programs oriented to the guarantee of a minimum revenue are currently being implemented in different countries, in order to assist the very poor fractions of the population. This paper describes the origin and the evolution of some proposals and analyzes the main concepts and values defended. Successful cases in Brazil and France are used to illustrate the discussion.
Keywords: Social welfare, Basic Income, Brazil, France.
