Better wealth distribution in Canada, with Floyd Marinescu

Floyd Marinescu has been a long-time advocate for Universal Basic Income, and more recently, the Land Value Tax (a significant rejigging of the way we tax people). Is he a dreamy radical? Or are his ideas, in fact, sensible policy strategies to build a fairer, more productive Canada? Listen and find out.

Floyd is CEO and co-founder of C4Media, which provides software development news and learning events serving 1.2 million online on, and 8,000 attendees annually via QCon conferences in SF, NY, London, Beijing, Shanghai, and Sao Paulo. Floyd is an angel investor in over a dozen startups and has built teams and businesses in the US, Canada, China, Brazil, and Europe.

Floyd is founder and primary donor to UBI Works, a basic income advocacy organization that has grown into a network of over 100,000 basic income supporters across Canada and publishing content seen over 1 million times a month. In 2018, Floyd organized 120 Canadian CEOs to sign a letter endorsing basic income in Canada.

His latest initiative, Common Wealth Canada raises awareness for a land value tax as a solution to the housing crisis, and the creation of a sovereign wealth fund that could pay all Canadians dividends.
