I’ve known Darryl Finkton since we overlapped with each other in Oxford. We even published a few academic papers together when he was still considering a career in medicine.
Since, he’s worked in healthcare, finance, and venture capital. But perhaps more importantly, he has left all that to advocate for his vision of a minimum basic income, founded out of his own experiences growing up in a low-income household in Indiana.
His story is both inspiring and educational — and his advocacy reminds us what’s at stake. He joined me to talk about his experiences, his advocacy, and his vision of an America where we “End Poverty, Make Trillions.”
