born Ana Helena Alves Palermo Cavalcante 

 

PhD Candidate

Her research centers on the discussion of the work-leisure dichotomy within the neoclassic labor model in economics and on the policy process of basic income within the Brazilian and German welfare state orders.

 

Dissertation project

 “Analyzing the Effects of Basic Income on Time Allocation and Productivity and its Policy Process”

The PhD project is divided in two parts. The first one develops a theoretical model to discuss the possible effects of an unconditional basic income (UBI) on people’s time allocation. The second investigates the policy process of such a reform (introduction of UBI) in the welfare state order. The work departs from a reformulation of the work-leisure dichotomy used to model people’s behavior concerning time allocation. This dichotomy is predominant in the economic sciences and is restrictive concerning the variety of ways in which we can invest our time. The idea behind the German word “Muße” is used to guide this reformulation.
