Abstract

The public discussion on the various devices of income redistribution has been certainly fruitful and articulated but largely spoiled by some interpretative limits. In this sense, in this article, we try to broaden the frame within which the discussion on basic income was mainly taken in the specialist literature and public debate. In fact, most of the reflections produced on the subject pick up an insufficient analysis of the transformations of capitalism, thus making it difficult to grasp fundamental innovations that have been determined within the current social relations of production. Furthermore, the opportunity to promote public policies focused on basic income, has been mostly discussed within a scenario concerned with making a neoliberal development model "sustainable", which on the contrary instead we believe would be appropriate to begin to criticize harshly and haste. What is proposed in this contribution is therefore the idea that the basic income have to be, first of all, considered as a means of raising and reorganizing the social conflict, and that only if observed in this light, in other words without reducing it to a tool to combat poverty, can became an interesting device for social research and political action.
